Real Tennis is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of tennis derived and sees players competing with wooden racquets and heavy cork-based balls, on a court that is longer and wider than a standard tennis court.
Prested are kindly offering 200 free standing tickets for the first day’s play, which will include local players Rob Fahey MBE and Richard Smith take part.
The Championships are set to be a fiercely competitive affair, with players from America, Australia and the UK challenging to be crowned World Champions.
