Attached is the updated/latest Spring Night Tennis Programme (Tuesdays) 2014-Spring-Night-Program_Tuesday-06-10-14.pdf
When you meet Richard Evans he will probably be too modest to tell you but he is a highly experienced former UK sports journalist and now long time Adelaide local who has extensive media experience and who regularly interviews the Who’s Who of world tennis.
Richard’s latest project is called ‘The Other Side Of The Net’ and he is looking for quirky, quintessentially Australian stories revolving around our humble Adelaide Hills tennis courts.
If your used or disused Club or private tennis court has a fabulous look or fascinating story to tell, please contact Richard and submit your story and your contribution could be recorded for posterity in Richard’s upcoming global book.
Exposure of this sort could elevate the interest in your Community or courts and may result in further media exposure for you or your Club or tell your story, just for fun. Private stories about private courts are also welcome…
The book will be a light hearted and enjoyable read and your contribution is now sought… This is a chance to have your story told, alongside numerous global celebrity stories and tales of forgotten courts.
Nothing is required of you, other than to contact Richard and tell your story…
‘Every tennis court has a story…’
I am an experienced sports journalist based in South Australia and am writing a book about the origins, evolution and huge variety of tennis courts across the world.
This will take in unknown backyard tennis playing areas through to courts that have come and gone on the various global professional circuits over the years.
I’m particularly looking for courts that have a story, obvious or otherwise, or can tell a story just by looking at them. They can be a city or country court or anything really, the more out there the better.
It’s the serious and the surreal in effect, looking at tennis from the other side of the net.
The book will combine photographs of tennis courts supplemented by a few words for each court or longer when the story demands it.
I would be most appreciative were you able to email me a few photographs of a court that has always caught your attention, ideally of a cross section of courts in the Adelaide Hills , to hopefully include in the book.
Any brief thoughts or context you have on your photos would be most welcome too. All photos will of course be accredited and, I hope, will have some promotional or other value for you.
There is a brief resume of some of my recent tennis journalism to be found at http://theothersideofthenet.com.au
Thank you for your time and please do get in touch.
