Hampton Court Palace Golf Club is set in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace near Kingston-upon-Thames in Surrey. It has the enviable accolade of being the only course in the country set within the grounds of a Royal Park.
Tennis has been played on this site since 1528 when Henry VIII comissioned the first Real Tennis court. Today the tennis club at Hampton Court Palace is a private members' club. An introductory lesson for non-members is available from the Club Professionals.
