Description:The Royal (real) Tennis court in Bedford Street, Leamington Spa. Three of the courts high plastered walls are flanked with a sloping penthouse and the server has to defend a long netted opening called the Dedans. The galleries, tambour and grille are features common to all courts - in the earliest days of the game these features may have been cloisters, a buttress and a serving hatch. On the floor are painted lines, a yard apart, called chases. 1987
