Administrative/Biographical history:

The Brookfield Manor Girls’ Club was founded in 1942 and consisted mainly of girlfriends and sisters of members of the Eton Manor Boys’ Club in Hackney Wick. It initially met in the Eton Manor clubhouse, before moving to other venues in Hackney Wick and Leyton. In the early years, Netball matches were often played on the Eton Manor playing fields known as “the Wilderness” on Hackney Marshes. As with the Eton Manor club, to which it retained links until Eton Manor’s closure, many of the Brookfield Manor members kept close associations to the club and their fellow-members. Brookfield Manor closed in 1991 due to a declining membership.
