"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 our goal is to help restore some of that swagger to today’s game. We’ll work with some of the best writers - those experienced in the tennis conversation, and those who've never covered the sport - as well as artists and photographers to explore the modern tennis landscape, bringing you something beautiful and meaningful four times a year."
This is my favourite thing I've bought in a while. Like the above Bio explains, it's a new magazine that is all about Tennis.
The big difference is that it doesn't feel like a sports magazine, it feels like a really luxe, independent fashion magazine except its about Tennis. It's made with the most beautiful thick textured paper and is filled with stunning photographs all taken with a view of showing Tennis in a different, more modern light.
I love Tennis so much, I basically watch Eurosport 24/7 when there are ATP matches or Grand Slams on the TV and when its not on TV, then I have about 5 apps I use to follow the Tennis tour to keep up to date, so this is legit my dream read.
It's American made so it is pretty expensive to buy over here, I think it was around £14 but I never buy magazines anymore as I just felt so super uninspired by them so I saw this as a big treat to myself.
I loved the content so much, it really is a mix of old tennis and new tennis and I really enjoyed the opinion pieces. The only thing I would love to see in future issues is maybe the balance be more in the favour of the new generation of Tennis stars and what is going on in the Tennis world at the moment rather than in the past but overall the magazine is a real joy to read and I will definitely buy the next issue.
I bought the magazine from the online magazine shop called Magalleria. I've never bought from them before but they were so helpful and the delivery was a great price too. They stock so many magazines I want to read too, so I can't wait to buy more!
