The Reial Club de Tennis de Barcelona (Barcelona Royal Tennis Club) is located in Pedralbes, and in 1970 it organized the first Spanish Open tennis tournament. It enables players to enjoy practising tennis in the heart of the city, along with fitness activities, paddle tennis and swimming. The club also has its own training schools.

Founded in 1899 as the Lawn-Tennis Club Barcelona, it became fully established thanks to the organization of various national and international competitions, women’s singles championships and Challenge cups. Following various mergers with other entities and several name changes, in 1913 it received the Royal title from King Alfonso XIII.

Situated in the residential area of Pedralbes since 1952, the Reial Club de Tennis Barcelona 1899 (RCTB) is mainly focused on the practice of tennis. The Club’s school has eighteen clay courts and has produced some prestigious professional players.

El RCTB organized the first Spanish Open in 1970. Years before, in 1953, the Club had hosted the first Conde de Godó Trophy, a prestigious competition which acquired the status of International Spanish Championship in 1968. With a view to enhancing the club’s national and international trajectory, the facilities were expanded in the town of Teià, located just a few km from Barcelona.

The club also offers other organized activities, including fitness, paddle tennis and swimming, with its own training schools. One of the club’s main objectives is to promote good human relations by organizing sporting, social and gastronomic activities with its members throughout the year.

It is a pioneer in competitions in a range of games such as chess, bridge, dominoes, pool and table tennis, and today hosts annual domino and bridge tournaments.
