Real Tennis

The Real Tennis court was built in 2008 and is one of only four school courts in the country. The head professional is Chris Ronaldson, ex-world champion and winner of multiple Grand Slam titles, and he is assisted by Mark and Zak Eadle.

Radleians who have reached the top of the game include Julian Snow and James Male, both of whom won the British Open and Amateur senior titles, Luke Danby (currently British Amateur doubles champion) and Ben Boddington, current British U21 doubles champion and captain of the GB U24 side touring Australia in 2015.

Radley has matches against the schools with their own courts, plays schools without their own (Eton, Warwick, Seaford) and against clubs such as Queen’s Club, Hardwick and Oxford University. Fixtures are played mid-week and frequently on Sundays. Radley competes strongly in the National Schools' Doubles championships, which the College has won several times at U18 level and is current holder of the National U16 title.

Seniors are able to opt to play Real Tennis as their major game, while Colts and Junior Colts can opt for a broader-based court games diet. Shells are able to play in Central Hours and often later in the day after their other games are over. Keen players can also play local club members at weekends and evenings.
