With Wimbledon fever still as hot as ever, tennis memorabilia will take centre court at Ewbank's this September.

The collection has been consigned for sale by the Tuckey family from Godalming in Surrey, who have had a long association with tennis; Agnes Tuckey and her doubles partner Hope Crisp were the winners of the first Wimbledon mixed doubles in 1913.

Agnes and her husband, Charles Orpen Tuckey, had three children, Richard, Raymond and Kay. Their son Raymond Tuckey won the men's doubles at Wimbledon in 1936 and was part of the winning British Davis Cup Team in 1935 and 1936.  Agnes, when in her fifties, partnered Raymond in the mixed doubles in 1931 and 1932, the only instance of a parent and child teaming up at the championships.

Daughter Kay played at Wimbledon in 1951, reaching the quarter finals before being beaten by Louise Brough, she also featured on the cover of the Wimbledon programme in this year. Kay was part of the Wightman Cup Team from 1949 to 1951 and won several other tournaments.

Following Kay’s death in March 2016, her family have consigned this historic collection for sale, including medals, trophies, and signed memorabilia.
The collection includes two gold medals won by Raymond Tuckey at The Lawn Tennis Hard Court Championships of Great Britain. A 9ct gold winner's medal won in 1935 for mixed doubles with M.C. Scriven, which is cased, weighs c25g has been valued at £150 to £250. Another gold winner’s medal, this time for the men's doubles with Pat Hughes in 1936 is cased and weighs c25g has been estimated at £150 to £250.

The experts at Ewbank’s have given trophies the highest estimates within the collection. Two silver twin-handled trophies for the first Wimbledon mixed doubles in 1913 for Mrs C.O. Tuckey and H. Crisp have been valued conservatively at between £300 and £500. They are marked Birmingham, Elkington & Co., 1911, and weigh 28oz and stand five inches high.

Carrying the same estimate, is a collection of 11 silver army tennis trophies from the 1930s, all won by C.R.D Tuckey, 48oz total silver weight.
Two silver twin-handled trophies on wooden stands from the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Doubles Challenge Cup Hampshire Championship, are valued at between £250 and £350. They are marked Atkin Brothers, Sheffield, 1911, and weigh in total 37oz.
