MCC More than a Cricket Club

Real Tennis and other Sports at Lord's
Standard Hardback Edition

Real Tennis has been played at the home of cricket since 1839. But why did a cricket club build a tennis court and how did Lord`s become the headquarters of the game in the 19th century? Why was the court demolished, rebuilt, and then nearly demolished again? How did MCC save real tennis in the UK after the Second World War? Has the game at Lord`s moved with the times over the last 20 years? How has MCC become involved in so many other sports too?
Clearly written, well-illustrated and attractively presented, this is the first account which answers these questions and looks at how real tennis and other sports have fared inside the world`s most famous cricket club
