This special supplement will be available for purchase in July, either by itself for $9.99 or accompanied with the 2012 book “Richmond - One of America’s Best Tennis Towns” for $29.99.

"International Tennis Day is an annual celebration to raise the profile and catalyze interest in the game of tennis—real tennis, court tennis, jeu de paume. Founded in 2014, International Tennis Day is funded by the U.S. Court Tennis Preservation Foundation, directed by the U.S. Court Tennis Association and supported by all the other national tennis governing bodies and associations in the world. The aim is to motivate current players and to mobilize new ones who have not played tennis before. International Tennis Day occurs annually on 20 June."
