"Tennis: A New Fan's Guide to the Game, the Tournaments and the Players" is the perfect introduction to one of the world's most enjoyable sports. Packed with colour photographs and illustrations, this brilliantly designed book really brings the game to life. Rather than focusing on the history of the sport in the UK or the Wimbledon Championships, this book recognises that tennis is a global game and includes: The Grand Slams; The world's best tennis stadiums; The world's best male and female tennis players; and, Tennis legends. With an energetic design and stunning images, this book includes serious tennis information, but delivers it in a contemporary way, recognising that youngsters tend to read only in short bursts. Bite-sized bits of information - including features on a day in the life of a top pro, tennis fashion, and how to get involved - combined with informative commentary should ensure the book is returned to again and again.
