The Knott Stephens Tour:

The Knott-Stephens Tour was established over 30 years ago by Jimmy Knott and Bill Stephens as a way to expose racquets players on both sides of the Atlantic to the other continent's courts and racquets/rackets communities. The tour takes place every two years and alternates between North American players visiting the UK and Brits visiting North America. The eight members of the team are usually in their mid to late twenties. Those of you who have had the opportunity to go on a Knott Stephens tour will already know what a rewarding experience it is.

A Message from the Knott-Stephens Tour Captain:

All, This morning, the tourers got together at Queens for a pre-tour hit and briefing. You could tell there was a sense of nervous anticipation in the air, as there were slightly more frames and air shots than usual… Thank you to all the hosts for your email correspondence over the past few months, and also arranging billeting, dinners and matches etc. Without which, this tour would not be possible. We are very excited to see what the next two weeks has in store for us, and look forward to seeing you all over the 7 legs of the tour.

Serve up! Jack Dymoke
