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.
See my racquet collection at and my addition to the Borg collection of the now rare Donnay Diamant.
