The People's Wimbledon by Richard Jones & Amisha Savani




''The People's Wimbledon is a fantastic book recommended for anybody interested, in not only tennis but the history of the tournament. The lovely sized hardback, is full of memories and images from 1877 to the present day, submitted from those involved in the tournament and the fans who have visited, and experienced the amazing atmosphere in the delightful grounds. A wonderful book full of beautiful memorabilia of this magnificent tournament is a must for any tennis fan."

"Absolutely brilliant!"

"Fantastic book"

"My sister received The People's Wimbledon yesterday and she is made up!"

"The quality of the pictures is excellent and the designer has made it a pictorial pleasure. I'm sure it will fascinate all of us (and we number millions worldwide) for whom Wimbledon is an annual delight.” JOHN BARRETT
