Dorothea Lambert Chambers' house



The home of a former 3 times British Wimbledon champion!

Location: 7 North Common Road, Ealing

Description: This is where Lawn tennis champion, Dorothea Lambert Chambers (1878 to 1960), lived from 1887 until 1907. It was
while she lived here that she first learnt how to play tennis, and won three of her seven Wimbledon Championships.

Dorothea Katherine Douglass displayed an early love of lawn tennis. She joined
the Ealing Lawn Tennis Club, and by the age of 11 had already been marked out
as a considerable talent. At the age of 17, Dorothea entered her first tournament
and competed in three meetings in 1898. Her play was at a very high standard,
she had a superb command of the ball, tactical skills and remarkable accuracy.

A blue plaque was put up here in 2005 and unveiled by Mr David Sills, Honorary President of Ealing Lawn Tennis Club.
