RACQUET Magazine - Issue 20
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!
