Charles Lyndhurst Winslow (1 August 1888 – 15 September 1963) was a three-time Olympic tennis medalist from South Africa.[1] He won two gold medals: Men's Singles and Doubles at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm. Eight years later, in Antwerp, Winslow won a bronze medal in the Men's Singles event.[2]

Winslow's father Lyndhurst Winslow played first-class cricket for Sussex County Cricket Club, scoring a century on debut against Gloucestershire County Cricket Club,[3] while Winslow's son Paul played Test cricket for South Africa.[4]

Winslow had a home at 157 Beacon Street in Boston that was sold to the family of Henry Weston Farnsworth in 1910.[5] He died on 15 September 1963 in Johannesburg, South Africa at the age of 75.
