Lawn Tennis

The Oratory Sports Centre boasts 6 stunning lawn tennis courts, available to hire during the summer holidays. The grounds staff do a superb job of keeping the courts in pristine condition; thus, they are now closed until Summer 2024. 

Real Tennis

The Oratory Sports Centre is home to one of just 26 courts in the country and is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of lawn tennis, or tennis, is descended.

The Oratory are delighted to have Rob Fahey (former Men’s Real Tennis World Champion) as their head professional.  Whilst his wife, Claire Fahey (current Ladies Real Tennis World Champion) joins the Oratory School as Head of Racquet sports.

Real Tennis is played in an asymmetrical court which contains many unusual features, sloping roofs, openings (galleries) in the walls and a main wall which has a kink in it (tambour).The game is played with racquets made of wood and hand-made balls and uses a scoring system similar to that of “lawn tennis” with the addition of a “chase”.
