Lawn Tennis Championships,
R.A.F. Air Pageant, Hendon
Cycling Championships, Herne Hilt
This afternoon we are taking listeners to some of the outdoor events that are happening in and around London
Here are some of the times of which you can be fairly certain :
3.0-3.10 Cricket from Lord's-First
3.10-3.20 Hendon Air Pageant
3.50-4.5 Back to Hendon
4.5-4.10 One Mile Tandem National
4.10-4.20 Hendon Air Pageant
4.50-5.O Bsck to Herne Hill, for the Start of the 50-mile Tandem Paced National Championship
At any time even during the Dance Music from 5.15 to 6.0 we may go over to Wimbledon or Lord's
This is a grand afternoon for sport. Who can broadcast a running commentary on cricket better than Howard Marshall , who is to describe the play in the first Test Match at Lord's ? Who can broadcast a running commentary on the Hendon Air Pageant better than Wing-Commander W. Hel morc, who described the Fly Past at Duxford on the occasion of King George's Jubilee and has described every Hendon Air Pageant that has been broadcast ? Then Colonel Brand and Captain Wakelam are unsurpassed at describing the lawn tennis championships at Wimbledon. And finally, an expert is to describe the cycling championships at Herne Hill.

A. J. PERRING
Last year our National Swimming Championships, organised by the Amateur Swimming Association, were centralised for the first time and were swum for at Blackpool under the auspices of the Northern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association. This year they are to be held at the Empire Pool, Wembley, under the auspices of the Southern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association, and will be swum for next week from Wednesday, July 1, to Saturday, July 4. Next year they will be held in one or other of the remaining three districts-Midland, West, and North-East. They are of the utmost importance to our swimming world because through them we shall be choosing our Olympic swimming and diving team.
This evening Mr. A. J. Perring ,
Chairman of the Committee of the Southern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association, is to talk about Championships and especially about next week's events. On Saturday, July 4, many of the finals will be decided.
