Can you identify some of the "answers" below from this summer's scavenger hunt?

          

 

Many note this park as being the site of the oldest continually operating cricket club in the US. In fact, early movie scenes of the SI Cricket Club can be seen in the famous silent film “Raffles the Amateur Cracksman” (1917). However, it was also the site of the first national tennis tournament in America. Take a video of you or your team acting out a good volley or giving it all you got with a killer serve.
