The court is shown on this site in a map dated 1675 although in its present
form it was probably rebuilt about 1798. The ancient game of Tennis has
always been closely connected with Oxford and is first mentioned there
in 1508. This is the only remaining court in Oxford still in use. Built of
stone with roof. Altered circa 1970. There are no datable architectural
features on the exterior except a flat chamfered stone arched doorway, and
that together with the interior passage for spectators which has an open
arcaded side of simple woodwork with small classical columns, may well date
The tennis court belongs to Merton College who rent it to the Tennis Club.
All the listed buildings in Kybald Street form a group.
