Real Tennis at Lord's: A Timeless Tradition Circa 1860 This photograph captures the essence of a Real Tennis match as it was played at the historic Lord's Court in London during the mid-19th century. Real Tennis, also known as Royal Tennis or Jeu de Paume, is an ancient racket sport that predates lawn tennis by several centuries. The game is believed to have originated in France in the 14th century and was popular among European royalty and nobility. In this image, we see two players engaged in a fierce competition, their concentration unwavering as they focus on the ball and their opponents' every move. The court, with its distinctive green and white stripes, is adorned with intricate wooden paneling and features a series of netted partitions that divide the playing area into seven courts. The players' attire, consisting of long trousers, waistcoats, and soft-soled shoes, is reminiscent of the fashion of the time. The atmosphere at Lord's Court was one of elegance and refinement, as the game was often played by the upper classes. The match depicted here likely took place in the presence of an audience, who would have gathered to watch the skilled players demonstrate their prowess and enjoy the camaraderie and social interaction that the game provided. Real Tennis at Lord's Court represents a fascinating glimpse into the past, offering a window into the rich history of this timeless sport and the traditions that have endured for centuries. The game may have evolved over time, but the thrill of competition and the allure of the court remain as captivating today as they were in the 1860s.
