Marking 50 Years by Chris Ronaldson


The world of Real Tennis has changed a great deal in the fifty years since Chris Ronaldson started work as a professional. A player from 1971 or earlier would find that the game itself has changed little, just a rule refinement here and there, but he (and it would be a ‘he’) would find almost all contemporary clubs transformed in atmosphere, with increased levels of activity and a greater variety of players. The game is in far better health than it was in the early 1970s and has a sense of global identity for the first time.

Chris Ronaldson is well placed to reflect on this period. He is the world’s longest-serving current professional; he has scaled the heights as a tournament player, contributed on and off the court to many aspects of the game and worked tirelessly to attract a wider range of players, including more women and juniors.

Cost: £15 for the standard edition and £75 for the limited edition.
