Radley College Real Tennis Court
Since opening its doors in 2008, Radley College Real Tennis Court has one of the highest occupancy rates in the world. The club attracts a healthy mix of students, staff, old boys and members of the local community.
Club activities include friendly matches with other clubs, internal tournaments, fun competitions, club nights, exhibition matches and a few social events. The court plays well and visitors often comment on the quality of the floor and the lighting.
Radley’s two professionals offer coaching lessons and drill sessions. These enable players of all standards to improve elements of their games. While Individual lessons are an excellent way to improve, sharing lessons with others enable players to practice specific shots.
Since opening, Radley College Real Tennis Court has enjoyed hosting national events including the British Over 60 Doubles Championship, British Amateur Doubles Championship, qualifiers for the British Open Singles and Doubles and exhibitions by World Champion Rob Fahey in 2013 and by the Ladies World Champion Claire Fahey in 2015. Also, there are teams in the Brodie Cup competition and in the National League, Division 6.
Membership is growing in number, experience and skill, thanks to the service, advice and coaching provided by two full-time professionals.
Finally, as one of only a few Real Tennis centres in the UK, Radley College Real Tennis Court offers a unique game and court, which has been enjoyed for centuries.
