Real tennis

Real tennis – one of several games sometimes called “the sport of kings” – is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of lawn tennis (usually simply called tennis), is descended. It is also known as court tennis in the United States,formerly royal tennis in England and Australia,[2] now real tennis, and courte-paume in France (a reference to the older, racquetless game of jeu de paume, the ancestor of modern handball and racquet games; many French real tennis courts are at jeu de paume clubs). for more click here
