WELCOME TO REAL TENNIS

Real tennis is a high strategy racket sport with a pedigree that can be traced back to the twelfth century. It is the original racket game from which are descended most modern racket games including lawn tennis (now called tennis) and squash.

Real tennis is a unique game which provides:

  • significant physical and technical challenges for all levels of player
  • a demanding test of skill, agility, court craft and strategy
  • a handicapping system that allows players of varied ability, age and experience to compete on equal terms.

Real tennis is played by sports enthusiasts of all ages and levels. Around the world you might call the game different things – ‘real’ tennis in Australia and Britain, ‘court’ tennis in the US, and ‘jeu de paume’ in France – to players, it is simply ‘tennis’.
