I think I have only seen one or two over the last decade.
I've made a special study of Wilding, as he was a New Zealander and a pretty special person. I have two biographies plus his own autobiography "On the Court and Off".

I've been working for the last 18 months or so on getting a wooden racquet tournament organised, to celebrate his centenary.

Our regional tennis organisation has expressed considerable interest (they oversee 47 clubs in my area), but we haven't finalised the details yet.
