Lockdown Book Recommendation
by John Shneerson
Are you in need of some lockdown reading? Here is a brilliant book written by John Shneerson published in November 2020, so it's hot off the press.
Real Tennis has been played at the home of cricket since 1839. But why did a cricket club build a tennis court and how did Lord`s become the headquarters
of the game in the 19th century? Why was the court demolished, rebuilt, and then nearly demolished again? How did MCC save real tennis in the UK
after the Second World War? Has the game at Lord`s moved with the times over the last 20 years? How has MCC become involved in so many other sports
Clearly written, well-illustrated and attractively presented, this is the first account which answers these questions and looks at how real tennis
and other sports have fared inside the world`s most famous cricket club.
