Hazell Streamline Tennis Racket, Green Star.
A good triple branch Green Star Streamline lawn tennis racket made by Hazells' of 111-113 Mare Street, London E 8. The racket is in very good condition for it's age, all transfers are bright in colour with slight rubbing to the one on the central spar. The original natural gut stringing is all intact, but has later leather covering to the handle with butt cap. This is a great example of such an iconic racket.

The design of the Streamline racket was filed for patent on December 17th 1935 by Frank W Donisthorpe, a former tennis player and its inventor. The company made tennis, badminton and squash rackets named red, blue and green star. They also produced a painted white and an aqua colour racket. Bunny Austin, the English tennis champion, actively promoted the Streamline racket. It was popular not just for its eye catching design but also for the practicality of its light weight.
