UPDATE: This Saturday's planned Tennis Heritage Australia day activities at the Toowooomba Tennis Association's James St tennis centre have been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.

IF YOU are a memorabilia collector and interested in learning more about Toowoomba's rich tennis heritage, James St tennis centre is the place for you to be this Saturday.

A group named Tennis Heritage Australia is looking to become active in Queensland and Toowoomba has been chosen to become a part of its network.

The initiative kicks off at the Toowoomba Tennis Association courts on Saturday when interested people are invited to bring along a small collection of old tennis items as part of a "show- and-tell" day.

The day also offers people the opportunity if they choose, to buy, sell or swap items.

Saturday's Tennis Heritage Australia day coincides with the Toowoomba tennis centre's 87th anniversary.

The James St courts opened on August 27, 1929.

The occasion will be marked by a short tour of the historic centre including a visit to the Darling Downs Museum of Tennis.

The day's co-ordinator Stephen Murphy said the Tennis Heritage Australia launch is aimed at tapping into the world-wide network of tennis collectors and collections.

"There is a world-wide community of tennis collectors, and I'm sure Toowoomba has its share of tennis history and memorabilia hidden away that people might like to bring along to display on Saturday," Murphy said.

"We have a tour of the historic centre planned and people might even like to have a hit with an old wooden or metal racquet."

The day runs between noon-2pm and a light lunch will be provided. To register to attend contact Stephen Murphy on 0409716647.
