According to the Malvern Gazette of 11 January 1907 a meadow known as Hollow Meadow was renamed Manor Park and work started immediately on creating the terraces as seen today. The founding sports were archery, croquet and tennis. In 1921 a gift of the land was made to a Trust with the stated aim of providing sport and leisure facilities for the people of Malvern. In 1934 Manor Park became a members’ club financed by subscriptions and facilities have been improved over the years since then.
The centenary newsletter of 2007 gives an outline history of the Club since its origin. A photograph of the open tennis tournament of 1912 is the photo for the previous list item ‘Origin of Manor Park’. The adjacent photograph shows the third indoor tennis court under construction in 2010. A photograph showing a model of the new cafe bar and indoor bowls social area is the photo for the next list item ‘Recent Improvements’. Click here to read the 1921 Trust Deed establishing the Club.
