Neptune Book of Tennis & Rackets - now available

19 Feb 2015

THE NEPTUNE BOOK OF TENNIS & RACKETS by James Bruce has now been published and be bought from Alan Chalmers


This is a complete revision and update of his father the late Lord Aberdare’s earlier books, which have long been internationally regarded as the most authoritative works on the games of Real Tennis and Rackets.  It provides the reader with a comprehensive account of everything that has happened in the games from their inception hundreds of years ago to 2014.

This new edition is bursting with over 300 new photos all in colour covering not just active courts and players but also every known court still standing in the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia.

The book contains comprehensive and completely re-written chapters on the history and present situation of every active court in the world (over 200 new pages) covering all that is new in the games-people, places, clubs and achievements. The author has also scoured the records of the UK, Australia, Canada, France and the USA to bring the statistics of all major tournaments up to date.

This large format book has over 450 pages.

The order form for either the £35 standard edition or the £350 leather-bound limited edition (100 copies) is attached.

If for any reason you are unable to open the order form, send an e-mail (with your mailing address) to and a printed copy of the order form will be immediately mailed to you wherever you are in the world.
