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.

We’re back from Wimbledon and ready to announce Racquet No. 20, our ode to the public courts, featuring a cover by former graffiti artist Timothy Curtis, check-ins at the public courts of LA and New York, deep dives into tennis skirts, racchette, and those funny colored tennis balls. The issue also includes profiles of Ivan Lendl, Iga Swiatek’s sports psychologist, Freeway Rick Ross and the first Indigenous American dentist (who also happens to be a tennis fanatic). Don’t forget your Parks Dept. permit!

In celebration of Wimbledon’s Centre Court, which turns 100 this year, we present an entire issue of Racquet filtered through the prism of that storied court, it’s cover featuring Althea Gibson, the first Black athlete to win the Slam, painted by Marcus Brutus.

In these pages, cultural attaché Andrea Petkovic takes on Centre Court, where she has never set foot, and Laura Bailey photographs British upstart Francesca Jones, who is profiled by Ed Cumming. Tom Parker photo-documents the evolution of Centre Court over the course of a year; Jessica Iredale analyzes Andre Agassi’s Wimbledon kits; Joel Drucker looks for the meaning of John McEnroe at the All England Club; while Gerald Marzorati goes in search of the vicar who won The Championships.

The rest of the issue is devoted to our favorite moments that took place on Centre Court, from Marion Bartoli’s Championship win and surprise retirement to the high-water mark for the Indian Express, and the time club pro Marcus Willis’ came through qualifying and the first round to earn the honor of getting pasted by Roger Federer on Centre Court.

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.
