Our next event is during the 2016 British Open at Queen’s (13-22 November):
The Real Tennis Society invites you to
the launch of RACQUET Magazine on
Wednesday 16th November, 2016
100 Shoreditch High Street
London E1 6JQ
Racquet Magazine is a new quarterly (lawn) tennis journal founded by Caitlin Thompson & David Shaftel that will appeal to the historian and player alike with alternative words and images by exciting writers and artists.
In each edition RACQUET Magazine will feature articles on related racquet games and this first edition includes an article on the 2016 Real Tennis World Championship by James Zug. The first edition also includes artwork by Bill Sullivan of SUN Press; Bill is an artist based in New York who produced a piece for Court Tennis Contemporary held at the Newport Art Museum during the World Championship in May.
The founding editor of RACQUET is David Shaftel who wrote two excellent articles on real tennis for the New Yorker and New York Times in 2015 – links to those articles you can find here:
