Real tennis at Lord's - the Home of Cricket.

On a tour of Lord's today, we visited the real tennis court. The guide, John Adams, explained that the name 'real tennis' comes from royal tennis, as it was played by kings including King Henry Vlll. Lord's is the home of cricket where the MCC is located - all the great cricket players of the world look forward to playing here, and a tour of this iconic ground is a fabulous experience. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly, you have the opportunity to see inside the spaceship-like Media Centre, the Long Room and the team Dressing Rooms where you can walk in the footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis and all the great cricketers going back to WG Grace.

Real Tennis Match at Cambridge CURTC 25.1.13

Real Tennis Match - Cambridge (CURTC) v MCC National League Division 2. 25 -1-2013
Friday January 25th saw some exciting tennis on the blue court, as Scott and James took on the MCC in a National League Division 2 match. James' opponent, former Cambridge University Ladies' Captain and world number 2 Karen Hird, only took one game, but this score did not reflect a lot of closely fought points. Scott played Mark Mathias, and scored a tremendous 6-0, 6-0 victory, taking his handicap well into single figures.

The doubles saw MCC fight back, but they were unable to cause much trouble for the unstoppable Cambridge pair, the final score of 8-3 to Cambridge indicating a job well done.
