Booking opens on 8 May 2017

Hampton Court Palace is proud to announce the inaugural Hampton Court Palace Real Tennis Champions Trophy, to be held at the Royal Tennis Court, from the 11 – 16 July 2017.

Real Tennis is an ancient game played by kings of Europe, most famously by Henry VIII. The game today still embraces its history and intrigue, yet is practised by dedicated professional athletes of great skill. Like a tournament of old, it’s the player’s ambition to be crowned the best of the best.

Competing for the tournament crown will be the world’s best Real Tennis players. Pros from America, Australia, France and the UK will grace the competition court and provide inspiration and entertainment.

This world ranking tournament will be played with a new format that reduces the size of the draw to the world’s top 8 players, resulting in exciting sporting action at every stage within the amazing backdrop of Hampton Court Palace.
