What is Real tennis
Who plays Real tennis
Everybody can join. And everybody can help reestablish Huis ter Kleef and bring back home real tennis. We need you. And we have to give a lot back in return. We sell exclusively the collectors item Delftware replica KLM house Huis ter Kleef. Or join us at the opening ceremony by tiling yourself.
I have played court tennis for more than half a century. I am one of these small number who has played in every court (45 or so) on earth. Court tennis (or real tennis as it is called in England or jeu de paume in France) is a game where fairness and sportsmanship are valued more highly than victories.
As a former British Ambassador to the Netherlands, and Chair of the huis ter kleef committee of recommendation at that time, I am delighted that real progress towards your goal is now being made, and am cheering you on!
Adding a "new" court to the real tennis world on the surface seems like a rather small 2% improvement but in reality, by adding that court in a different country, it gives the sport that 20% extra global punch and hopefully the impetus to continue on into other countries around the world.
Become a proud member of the Huis ter Kleef Real Tennis Club. A truly classy endeavor!
Only 50 something courts world wide! You can see why we want one in the Netherlands as well.
Real Tennis, only for the select few that appreciate the true heritage of all racquet sports.
