HRTC advertising for a new Assistant Professional

The HRTC committee have been giving serious thought to the future directions and needs of the Club. We wish to secure a vibrant and sustainable future for real tennis and HRTC. The recent arrival of our new Head Pro Brett and the recent departure of our part-time Assistant Professional Pat Bradfield has created a good opportunity to reconsider our tennis professional needs.

The committee have put together a business case, and with much consideration, decided to advertise for a full-time assistant professional. With the recent increased court usage this increase in professional hours becomes possible. (view advert)

There is some small financial risk associated with this and the committee have identified risk mitigation strategies, including an increase in full fee paying members. We hope to have appointed someone to this position within the next few months, but if you know of anyone suitable for the position then please give them a nudge. With your ongoing support and engagement in tennis and the Club, we look forward to a prosperous future.

Kind Regards

Christine Stirling
President HRTC

Australian Open 2018 | Make a Tax Deductible Donation

The end of financial year is almost here and the Hobart Real Tennis Club needs your help raising money for the 2018 Real Tennis Australian Open.

You may have heard of our ARTA Development Fund which is run in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation to enable donations to be tax deductible. This fund raises money for:

1.      Real Tennis Tournaments (Mainly Australian Open)

2.      Advancement of Real Tennis (new courts / new clubs)

3.      Juniors

4.      Women’s Tennis

We have just started to raise funds, but need to get to $30,000 by December so that we can attract and reward the World’s Best Players.

If you have ever thought of supporting Australian Real Tennis this is a great time to give!

Donate to the ARTA Development Fund today, or by 30 June, and you can receive a tax deduction in the current financial year.

Without contributions from supporters like you, we won’t have the chance to thrive, grow and compete and be a successful organisation. The future can be bigger and brighter for us with your help.


We will assume your donation is for the 2018 Australian Open. Please email president@hobarttennis.com.au
