The Oratory Sports Centre is home to one of the 27 real tennis courts in the UK.

Real tennis is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of lawn tennis is descended. The school has hosted several tournaments including prep schools, public schools and the World Championships in 2006.

The game is entertaining to watch and our court has several seating galleries where visitors are most welcome to come and see what is going on. Through the week you’ll see everything from teenagers smashing the ball around in singles matches to senior players with limited mobility enjoying a game of doubles.

If you enjoy lawn tennis, squash, cricket, hockey or other ball sports then why not give it a go? We’d be delighted to give you a free taster session.
