That's the All England - the national championships. Coaches/Buses were used to take competitors from the HQ to the section (and back) - no option for private transport.
I think it was this century that the practice stopped - it was certainly still the case on my last national in 1997.
Mostly double decker buses when I was competing.

Enjoyed watching these old films recently.
The two river matches with dickie Carr are well worth watching
some of the old-ish ivideos are worth a peek, woodbines challenge, hooked international etc
