From "Pastime", June 23, 1886: "This meeting, the first held at Clifton, commenced on Monday last, and will conclude on Saturday. In the midst of a neighbourhood where lawn tennis is very popular, and situated in the heart of Clifton, and within a few minutes' walk of Bristol, the ground of the Clifton Lawn Tennis Club offers advantages for a tournament which few other clubs possess. Under the honorary secretaryship of Charles Lacy Sweet the club prospered apace, and it now possesses within its compact enclosure four grass courts and three of asphalte, with a comfortable pavilion, dressing rooms, etc."
