JEU DE PAUME or REAL TENNIS
Ancestor of the popular lawn tennis, this sport is usually played indoors. It was an Olympic sport only at the 1908 games in London.The game is played generally with one or two opponents, face to face, separated by a net, as in lawn tennis. The players can also roll the ball on the walls or the roof. When played outside it is called Longue Paume. In the past it was played by hand, one a side or anywhere up to six a side. The court was 60 metres long and separated by a net fixed into the ground.
