A tennis court was the first official meeting place of the French Revolution. Members of the Third Estate (the masses)—the clergy and nobility made up the First and Second Estates, respectively—gathered on June 20, 1789, on a tennis court near the Palace of Versailles after being locked out of a meeting of the Estates-General. Here they formed the National Assembly and took the Tennis Court Oath. This was also the first time French citizens publicly opposed King Louis XVI.
