Queen's Club 125 years on is still the multi-purpose, multi-sports complex it was originally conceived to be. It still earns the cachet of gentlemanly if not aristocratic good manners and sportsmanship and still thrives on its central position in one of the greatest cities in the world. Where it has advanced - and there are themes in this much expanded edition of McKelvie's book - is that it is the established home of the country's most important non-grand-slam lawn tennis tournament and the undisputed world centre for both real tennis and rackets. It is also now a members club - the result of the much reported 'negotiations' with the LTA back in 2006 - and finally it has had a makeover in no uncertain terms. Jeremy Greenwood's colourful update is published with some pride. It puts the records straight yet keeps the reader's interest by selecting judiciously from the mass of researched material. Any club has a life of its own. Queen's, which has always been at the top of the tree, deserves to have the full story told - for all racket sports enthusiasts as much as for its 4,000 members.
