EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the essence of Real Tennis, the ancient and noble sport, as it was played in its last known location in Paris, at Passage Cendrier. The image transports us back in time to an era when the game was still played in its original format, within the enclosed walls of a jeu de paume, or indoor tennis court. Real Tennis, also known as Royal Tennis or Court Tennis, has its origins in medieval France and Spain, and was a popular pastime among European nobility for centuries. The game is played with a small, solid ball and a racket with a large, padded head, and involves hitting the ball against the walls and ceiling of the court to score points. Passage Cendrier, located in the heart of Paris, was one of the last remaining jeu de paume courts in the city. The court was built in the late 16th century and was a favorite among French monarchs and nobility, including King Louis XIII and Cardinal Richelieu. The passage, which connected two streets in the Marais district, was also home to a number of other recreational facilities, including a bowling alley and a billiards room. The photograph, taken in the early 20th century, shows a lively scene of Real Tennis in progress. Two players in period attire are engaged in a fierce rally, their racket strokes poised and precise as they attempt to outmaneuver each other. The court, with its high walls and intricate decorative details, looms in the background, a testament to the rich history and tradition of this unique and fascinating sport. Today, Real Tennis is a rare and cherished pastime, with only a handful of courts remaining in existence. The last jeu de paume in Paris, Passage Cendrier, was demolished in the 1930s, leaving this photograph as one of the few remaining records of the game as it was once played in the City of Light.
