TENNIS CHAMPION BACK

FUTURE PLAY UNLIKELY

Doubts as to whether he would take up tennis again were expressed by Captain A. C. Stedman, former holder of the New Zealand singljes, doubles, and combined doubles championships, when discussing future plans yesterday. Captain Stedman, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Stedman, returned with the draft of repatriated prisoners of war.' He gained his commission in New Zealand and went to the Middle East with an early reinforcement draft. Serving in an artillery unit in Greece, Crete and Libya, he was captured during the desert offensive at Sidi Rezegh in November, 1941.

Captain Stedman said that his last match had been in Egypt in 1941. During the time he was prisoner, sports facilities were limited and he had no opportunity to play tennis. It was unlikely that he would be seen again on local courts, he said.
