Old catalogues, photographs, postcards, event programs, advertisements, newspapers and magazines provide an important link with the history of tennis racquets.

They enable accurate racquet dating as well as providing an insight into racquet equipment, prices, the companies, their philosophies and sponsorships.

More recently Australia Post has released special stamps recognising the achievements of past Australian greats Rod Laver and Margaret Court, and US Open Champion Lleyton Hewitt. [Images reproduced with permission of Australia Post].
