What is real tennis (court tennis)?

Real tennis is the original racquet sport from which the modern game
of lawn tennis, or tennis, is descended. It is also known as jeu de
paume in France, "court tennis" in the United States.

Real tennis is still played by enthusiasts on 43 existing courts in
the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, and France.

is also the national headquarters of real tennis, hosting the British
Open every year.  See also www.queensclub.co.uk
