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.

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”.
