The Rise and Fall of Stické Tennis 1874 – 1939

Paperback Edition

Stické tennis enjoyed a brief period of popularity at the end of the nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth century. In many ways it is a very suitable game for modern participants and it combines some of the best elements of real tennis, lawn tennis, rackets and squash rackets.
In this volume Nigel à Brassard provides a comprehensive narrative of the invention and development of the military outdoor and civilian indoor versions of the game. As such it fills a void in the literature of racket sports.
