Hampton Court Palace

Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 15:30
Hampton Court Palace, one of six venues cared for by charity Historic Royal Palaces, has announced it will be hosting a brand new international real tennis tournament at the Royal Tennis Court, 11th - 16th July 2017.
Competing for the tournament crown will be the world’s best Real Tennis players, who will grace the competition court and provide inspiration and entertainment.
The world-class event will showcase a brand new format with a quick-fire qualifying process and then a main event that pits closely seeded players together throughout the rounds. The result will be exciting sporting action at every stage, all within the breath-taking backdrop of Hampton Court Palace.
Liz Young, Head of Events at Historic Royal Palaces, says: “We are delighted to announce this new international real tennis tournament at Hampton Court Palace. This is the first time Hampton Court Palace has produced its own sporting event of this kind and the tournament has already generated a fantastic level of interest.
“In addition to witnessing some exhilarating sporting action, spectators who attend the tournament will play their part in ensuring the palace continues to be well maintained and open for all to enjoy, as income raised from commercial activities is reinvested in conservation, public access and educational activities.”
Tickets for the real tennis tournament can be purchased online through the Hampton Court Palace ticket office -
