The Serpentine Swimming Club's Christmas morning handicap is swum over a 100 yard course for the Peter Pan Cup. The club's Christmas Day race has been held every year since 1864. In the early years it was customary for the winner to be presented with a medal. Author J M Barrie became associated with the Christmas Day race in 1903 when he first donated a Peter Pan Cup. This coincided with the play Peter Pan's debut on the London stage. Barrie continued to present a cup for the winner each year up to 1932. The honour then fell to Albert Greenbury, a dedicated member since 1911 who served as club president from 1935 to 1955. To this day the Greenbury family continue the tradition. Albert's granddaughter, Lucy Harris, is a current member and races all through the year.
