Real Tennis Club

Brief Description of Club Activities

Real Tennis is a truly unique sport with only 45 courts worldwide.  It is the founding father of modern day Tennis, having been invented in the 16th Century (Henry VIII was an avid player!).  It is said to be a mix between Tennis, Squash and Chess, using a combination of power, accuracy and strategy.  

Newcastle plays host to one of the most well regarded courts in the UK, we hold regular games between members, social training sessions and fixtures against Cambridge, Durham, St Andrew's, Bristol, Middlesex, Oxford and Exeter.

We also hold regular club tournaments and an annual ball.
