The Gray Family of Cambridge 

Tuesday, 10 October, 2023 , 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Claire Martinsen will talk about the Gray family – five Cambridge born brothers who achieved world renowned status in the sport of racquets. Indeed it is said ‘there is no record of any family obtaining such a high standard in one sport as that of the Gray family’. Three of the siblings were world racquets champions, and eldest brother Henry founded the eponymous sports company, still in business today. How the brothers did it promises to make an interesting evening, full of Cambridge sporting history.

Claire has been a member of the Mill Road Cemetery History Group for several years. By day Claire is a successful entrepreneur and runs Breckland Orchard which makes carbonated drinks. She is also a member of the Mill Road WI.

This event takes place at Ross Street Community Centre on 10 October 2023 at 7:30pm, doors open at 7pm, all are welcome. Admission £3.
