Anyone for tennis? Martin Parr’s unique and evocative pictures capture the spectacle of a year at the Grand Slam tournaments

Since 2014, Martin Parr, one of Britain’s best-loved photographers, has been granted exclusive access to the most prestigious Grand Slam tennis tournaments, from the Australian and French Opens to Wimbledon and the US Open. Parr’s vivid shots – sometimes poignant, often hilarious – provide a unique overview of life on and off the court, from players to picnickers, sun-hats, and visors to rain-stopped-play. Match Point features more than 80 photographs from a brand new body of work – many published here for the first time.
