Friday 24th May the Club is having a night to greet new Members and invites all members of the Club to drop in.
The drinks, provided by the Club for the first hour, will start at 5.30pm. At 6.30pm you may buy your own drinks and all profit will go to our Junior Tournament Fund. Pizza will also be served during the evening so come and enjoy your Club and the facilities it provides.
From 6pm -7pm there will be an exhibition match between Graham Hyland and Barry Toates v Al Ramsay and Pete Boyles. You will see the names of all four of these players highlighted on the Honour Boards and Trophies in the Butler Room and should feel free to come and chat to them about the game and their experiences if you wish. When you consider there are only 46 of these courts in the world we are very lucky to be able to enjoy this unique and fascinating game.
We hope as many members as possible will take this opportunity to welcome new members, see a high standard doubles and enjoy the Club atmosphere.
We will need some idea of numbers to facilitate the food and drinks so please let Barry know if you can make it or fill in the form below.
This same weekend, 25th, 26th we are staging the Australian Amateur Junior Singles and would encourage members to come and support Australia’s rising stars!
Please see attachment for a list of the exciting events planned for 2013. Hope to see you there supporting your Club.

The excitement of the Australian Open may be over but at Hobart Real Tennis Club the fun never stops!!!! In the spirit of upholding a time honoured tradition known as Oktoberfest…. HRTC is planning a beer tasting night.
Tim Goddard from Cool Wine (who has previously done a wine and a whisky tasting for us) will this time be tempting us with a selection of ten Oktoberfest style beers, a couple of ciders, some interesting beer facts and if that’s not enough we are having a German bratwurst/sauerkraut bbq afterwards!!!!

Friday 5th October, 5.30pm – 6.45pm

Lederhosen and beer wench attire are optional but if you have them lying around at home but have never had an occasion to wear them……now is your chance to shine!!!!

As a fun way to kick off the Australian Open, Hobart Real Tennis Club is running a Pro Am Tournament on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August.
Nothing puts you closer to the tennis action than participating in a Pro-Am tournament and you get the rare chance to live out your real tennis dream by pairing up with one of the world’s premier professionals during this exciting and engaging event.
Pro-Am participants will get the opportunity to compete alongside Rob Fahey, Steve Virgona, Chris Chapman, Kieran Booth, Frank Filippelli, Jonathan Howell, Nick Howell, Andrew Fowler, Barry Toates, Brett McFarlane, Graham Hyland and if you’re really lucky …. Claire Vigrass!!!
To keep it fair (and make sure someone other than Claire gets some votes!) we are making it a ballot draw. Your entry fee guarantees you a spot in the Tournament but it is up to Lady Luck to decide who you are partnered with. Players are guaranteed a minimum of 5 matches and if you make it through, a semi and a final as well.
Entries are limited to the number of Pro’s we have available so if you are interested please fill in entry form and get it back to us ASAP.
If you have any queries regarding the event please give Barry a call at the Club. Australian Open Pro Am Entry Form
