Budding real tennis enthusiasts are being encouraged to sign up for an exclusive alumni discount package at Middlesex University Real Tennis Club (MURTC).
Real tennis is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of lawn tennis is descended. It was introduced to England from France and popularised by Henry V111 in the early 16th century.
The state-of-the-art Millennium court at Middlesex University was established in 2000 and is a world-class facility bringing the historic game into the 21st century with heated flooring, energy saving lighting and live game recording.

John Farrall, Director MURTC, said: "Real tennis is a rare and beautiful game that is played on only 25 sites in the UK and Middlesex University is one of them. If you've played lawn tennis, squash, badminton, cricket or other ball games, you can play real tennis.
"We also have links to the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) and can arrange a Real Tennis package that includes an exclusive tour of Lord's Cricket Ground including the pavilion and real tennis court."
