Description

n 1971, the non-racial Southern African Lawn Tennis Union sent six promising young players on a historic tour to play tournaments in Europe. The team was known as the ‘Dhiraj’ squad, after national champion Jasmat Dhiraj.

Tennis, Apartheid and Social Justice records the political, social and sporting conditions associated with the 1971 tour, the adventures of the talented young black tennis players, the impact of the tour on them and the lessons learned. It documents the collusion of international tennis associations with the racist white-only South African tennis body that prevented a Dhiraj squad member, Hoosen Bobat, the opportunity to play in the Junior Wimbledon championships. The book contends that there has been neither recognition of nor reparations for outstanding apartheid-era black sportspersons and that the apartheid legacy continues to impinge powerfully on tennis today.
