Wimbledon: The Official History 5th Edition

Detailed description

This beautifully-presented and fully revised and updated edition of popular former BBC commentator John Barrett’s seminal history of The Championships tells the story of how a small croquet club in rural Surrey has grown to become the world's most famous tennis club and home to one of the great international sporting events.
With additional text bringing the text right up to date and over more than 500 lavishly illustrated pages packed with archive photography and memorabilia from the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, the rich history of Wimbledon and its unique atmosphere – where the highest level of international sport meets an afternoon in an English garden – is magnificently captured in this essential volume.

  • Over 500 pages
  • Insight into the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum collections
