The Royal Tennis Court at Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court, Henry VIII's palace and real tennis court lived up to all expectations. This was the second exhibition match of the day, it was great to see Guy's friends Cat, Fin and Becki and Gus's friends Maria, Cassie and Anna. Much explaining of rules followed and hopefully understanding!
Another court in impeccable condition and we were charmed by the sitting room and dining room and tennis court garden in which we had drinks afterwards.
Security was tight but Dr Robertson's party made it through all the locked doors. Players have to lock themselves on court, to stop wandering tourists being hit on the head! This did not stop Henry VIII being hit on the head - a protrait of him adorns the grille! The grille is one of the winning targets. Gus now fears for his head!
