Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club

Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club is one of only 27 Real Tennis courts in the UK and 46 in the world.  Built in 1894, the court is situated on Matthew Bank between Jesmond and South Gosforth and is only a few miles from the centre of Newcastle, close to Ilford Road metro.  Most of the UK courts date from at least a century ago (1529-1911) but seven courts have been built since 1989 with the newest court, Wellington, built in 2016.

The building has been leased to the club by Newcastle Council and we have recently negotiated a 250 year lease with an option to take on the freehold.
