Racquet is a new quarterly tennis magazine that celebrates the art, ideas, style and culture that surround tennis. We don’t think of the game as a country club sport, lumped in with golf and healthy only in the suburbs. We’ll talk about the pro tour, but not at the expense of the conversations that reach beyond it.
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. That’s why we chose Yannick Noah for our first cover. He best personifies the quintessential Racquet player: A stylish, timeless, international showman, on the court and off. With Racquet, we want to take you around the world as we illuminate stories and issues that have resonance in the tennis world and beyond. We wear tennis whites—but by choice, not mandate.
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.
