England Project's 1900 Wimbledon Challenge

England Project's Wimbledon Challenge

Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. The inaugural Championships were held at the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club, with an entry of 22 men attracted by an announcement in The Field. By 1884 the ladies joined in but our tournament focuses on the 1900 Championship and we have chosen some interesting names for you to Ace!

+++++++++NEWSFLASH++++++++++++++

If you are about to join all the players are taken but don’t let that put you off. Just add your name and collaborate

The Challenge

We have selected sixteen players who competed at Wimbledon in 1900. They are listed in the tournament chart below.

The challenge is to create a profile for each player, add sources and connect them to the single family tree. (See hints below)

This will be a knock out competition, but we have inverted the logic. In our competition, the player whose profile has not been finished will move forward to the next round. As a reward for finishing your player first, there will be a points system:

  • First round: If you finish your player first, you will collect 4 points each -- i.e. 4 points for each project member who works on one of the eight players finished in this round.
  • Second round: 3 points each for finishing your player first. Four players will be finished in this round.
  • Quarter-finals: 2 points each for finishing your player first. Two players will be finished in this round.
  • Semi Final—>Final : 1 point for finishing your player first. One player will be finished in this round. The last remaining player will receive the Upside Down Cup! We will award bonus points to anyone who can help us to finish the "winner" once all the other players are done.

How to Join

  1. Choose your player. You can have more than one.
  2. Place your name in the following format next to the player you will be working on: [[Smithy-15790|Nifty Smiffy]]
  3. As soon as you have added your name, you can start working on the profile. If a profile doesn't already exist, the first step is to create one!
  4. In the first round, a maximum of 3 people can work on each player -- so get your name down quickly. (This limit doesn't apply after round one.)
  5. You can add your name to more than one player, but please try to avoid playing on both sides of a match! Once your player is finished, you can add your name to another player for the next round.

What next?

Once you have connected your player to the single family tree, your team can declare that player complete by adding the following to the end of the ‘Status’ line in the PLAYERS SECTION and saving: ~~~~🎾
(This will leave your name and time stamp.)

Declaration of the Winner

The winner will be the person that collects the most points.
All participants will be awarded an exclusive participation sticker to add to their own profile!

Some Interesting facts

  • The term "tennis" is thought to derive from the French word tenez, which means "take heed" – a warning from the server to the receiver.
  • Royal interest in England began with Henry V but it was Henry VIII who made the biggest impact as a young monarch, playing the game at Hampton Court on a court he had built in 1530.
  • The first televised airing of Wimbledon was by the BBC on 21 June 1937

Hints

  • Some of the profiles are already in Wikitree but they may need improving or connecting. Check carefully before you create a new profile
  • You know you have a connection when you link to someone with a profile that has a message at the bottom of the screen saying something like...Albert is 28 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree
  • Try to work as a team. Some people are good at connecting, some good at finding sources and so on. Many hands make light work!
  • If you have finished, why not give other members of the team a quiet helping hand. It’s just for fun!
