Real Tennis Champions Trophy - RTC - 2018

03 Apr 2018

Hampton Court Palace is proud to announce the return of the Hampton Court Palace Real Tennis Champions Trophy, to be held at the Royal Tennis Court, from the 16 – 22 July 2018.

Real Tennis Champions Trophy - RTC - 2018

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 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.
