That’s why each Ryman village is named after a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer. Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page to name a few. They lived with passion and purpose, they pushed further, they went beyond the ordinary. That’s exactly what we strive to do every day at Ryman. To pioneer a new way of living, for a new retirement generation.
New Zealand’s first world champion on the sporting stage, Anthony (or Tony) Wilding, was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1978.
At the time of his death in 1915, aged 31, Anthony had won eleven Grand Slam titles including eight Wimbledon titles – four singles and four doubles – Davis Cup titles, and a bronze medal in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics. Showing grit and determination, Anthony persisted for six years after his Wimbledon debut before winning the trophy.
Regarded as a fair and honest sportsperson, Anthony is remembered as debonair and always on the hunt for adventure. In addition to his tennis career, he was a keen motorcycle enthusiast having ridden much of the European continent and America and a first-class cricketer for the Canterbury cricket team in the early 1900s.
Having joined the Royal Marines and served as a Captain with the Royal Naval Armoured Car Division, Anthony was killed in action during the Battle of Aubers Ridge at Neuve-Chapelle, France soon before he was due to marry Broadway star, Maxine Elliott.
Anthony’s book On the Court and Off was first published in 1912. A biography Captain Anthony Wilding by A. Wallis Myers was published in 1916.
