The book, which contains previously unpublished photographs and documents, tells the story of the birth of tennis and the production of the first tennis rackets in Italy, and details the considerable operational and financial contribution the British community made to Bordighera’s social, cultural and economic development.
Because of its’ history with tennis, Bordighera was the natural choice for the location of the Piatti Tennis Centre, which ranks amongst the best in Europe.
