This National Film Board episode of Australian Diary was made not long after Australia regained the Davis Cup in 1950.

At that time the team played with Australian-made tennis racquets, which were also exported to countries like the US and South Africa. 

This clip shows how the racquets were made and features Ken McGregor, who was part of the winning Davis Cup teams in 1950, 1951 and 1952.
