SPORT, PASSION / Racquet

Racquet

Racquet is a new quarterly magazine that celebrates the art, ideas, style and culture that surround tennis. We fondly remember the swashbuckling sport of the tennis boom of the 1970s and ’80s, and we’re working to restore some of that swagger to today’s game. We work with some of the best writers – those experienced in the tennis conversation, and those who’ve never covered the sport – as well as celebrated artists and photographers to explore the modern tennis landscape, bringing you something beautiful and meaningful four times a year.

Racquet: The Book

Racquet N°The Book

Racquet: The Book

The best writing from the first three years of Racquet magazine.

When the popularity of tennis peaked in the late ’70s and early ’80s, the sport was populated by buccaneering talents with outsize personas, such as Borg, Evert, McEnroe, Navratilova, Gerulaitis, Austin, King, and Connors. The game was played in every park, and tennis clothes became appropriate attire for cocktails as well as for a match. With success, however, came polish, and tennis–if not the game itself, then how it came to be represented in the culture–got boring. Having a big personality was no longer a virtue. Tennis went back to being a bastion of the elite.
