The Royal Tennis Court, Hampton Court is a real tennis court which was built for Henry VIII of England , who played there from 1528, and is still home to an active real tennis club.
During the 17th century various improvements were made to the court. One of the first acts of Charles II after his restoration in 1660 was to order the extensive refitting of the Tudor Tennis Court. This included the laying of a new tile floor, the remodelling of the galleries and repairs to the roof. At the same time, new nets, curtains and velvet cushions for the spectator's seats were provided. The interlaced initials above the net on the wall opposite the corridors are however not those of Charles but of William and Mary (1689-1702). Since the end of the 17th century the court has undergone little alteration. However progress is not incompatible with history: in 1975 sodium halide lighting was installed making the court the best lit in Great Britain and possibly anywhere.

Since 1922 when High Hampton Inn was constructed, generations of tennis players have relished their games here, in the crisp cool air of the southern Blue Ridge mountains.
Matches were played on two clay courts until the early 1970s, when tennis experienced a boom in popularity, and five Har-Tru courts were built to satisfy the demand. The original two clay courts were converted into one stadium court, and today, tennis is a favorite among the active set at High Hampton.
Community members enjoy match-play, professional and top-ranked junior exhibitions, and plenty of opportunities for pick-up games. Round robins are a particular favorite — a perfect combination of active recreation and rejuvenating sociability. And to hone their skills, many participate in High Hampton’s array of specialized clinics for all ages and levels, or enjoy one-to-one attention from HIgh Hampton’s tennis pro.
