Hyde Real Tennis

Bridport is home to one of the UK’s oldest real tennis courts. The Hyde real tennis court, built in 1884, is located just two miles from the leisure centre, in the village of Walditch. It’s said that King Henry VIII played tennis here, and the court is widely regarded as one of the finest in the world. The Hyde received Grade II listed status from Historic England in 1999.
Like the leisure centre, the Hyde is non profit-making. It is funded and run by the Bridport & West Dorset Sports Trust, for the benefit of the people of Bridport.
