Today it was announced that Gregory Howe's unique tennis tale, Chasing Points, has been longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award.
Our congratulations go out to Greg, whose debut book, Chasing Points: A Season on the Pro Tennis Circuit, offers a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of a touring tennis professional from the perspective of a real 'underdog'.
After quitting as a teacher in London at the age of 34, Greg chased his childhood dream of becoming a world-ranked tennis professional. He started his year-long journey in the minor leagues, playing across four continents, as far afield as Bangkok, Kampala and Lahore, initially struggling against younger, fitter players.
Greg now finds himself with even tougher opposition for the prestigious 30th William Hill Award – including F1 driver Jenson Button and Paralympian Andy Grant, not to mention an exposé of Tiger Woods and a gonzo-style look at the crazy world of World Championship darts culture.
A total of 17 books make up the long list, with a shortlist set to be announced on 23 October.
Chasing Points: A Season on the Pro Tennis Circuit follows Gregory Howe in his journey through the levels of the professional game. Discover how Gregory:
