Barnsley Serves the World: Stories from the Slazenger Factory

Barnsley Museums will be serving up a treat with this celebration of all things Slazenger.

At the world famous factory,  found right here in Barnsley, brilliant balls were made, later travelling to all the top tournaments, right across the world!

The exhibition will showcase the stories of the people who worked there, reliving memories and fun times in the factory.  There will be top tennis objects, photographs and films, activities for sporting fans of all ages with lots to see and raise a smile.

For tennis fans or just fans of Barnsley, this exhibition is set to make quite a racquet.
