Apart from cricket, Don Bradman excelled in many sports including tennis, squash, golf and billiards. As a youngster he was picked to play in the Country Week tennis competition and played competitively in the Bowral Competition. Upon his arrival in Adelaide in 1934 he took up squash and in 1939 won the South Australian squash championship. He played golf from a young age until he was well into his eighties when he regularly ‘broke his age’ as a member of the Kooyonga Golf Club, Adelaide.
