Racquet is a quarterly magazine that celebrates the art, ideas, style and culture surrounding tennis. Remembering fondly the tennis boom heyday of the 1970s and 1980s, the magazine's purpose is to work to restore some of that aura and importance to today's game.
Among its pages meet the best writers - those with experience in the conversation about tennis and those who have never dealt with the sport - as well as renowned artists and photographers to explore the landscape of modern tennis.
Dimensions: 19 x 24 cm
Number of pages: 120
The seventeenth edition of Racquet is truly special because it is dedicated and curated by one of the most important voices in tennis and in the world: Naomi Osaka.
Features a profile of Naomi from Thessaly La Force, a dip into Naomi's fashion philosophy by Jessica Iredale, a Kenji Hall article on how Naomi's political activism is perceived in Japan, and a look at the themes of tennis in Japanese animation .
There are also conversations between Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) and Takashi Murakami and artists Honor Titus and Mari Osaka.
We also go to Haiti to check out the tennis culture there.
