240 x 190 mm, 122 pages
New York, US

Editor: David Shaftel
Guest editor: Naomi Osaka

A magazine about tennis that places the sport at the heart of art, culture, fashion and ideas. Always a rich read and visual treat, whether you’re a tennis head or not (trust us). 

This very special issue is guest edited by Naomi Osaka herself. On the cover: Wellbeing (2021) by Nigerian visual artist Dennis Osadebe, which was commissioned by Osaka especially for this edition.

On the Journal:
‘Though tennis is absolutely at its core, Racquet really is wide open. Art, culture and fashion are all very much at home here. I mean, despite the fact I haven’t picked up a racquet in years (though my partner was a minor child wunderkind at the sport) here I am, a little bit in love with a tennis magazine. ’

Hear editor David Shaftel talk about his magazine at magCulture Meets, July 2017.
