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.
The weather may be cool – but HRTC is certainly heating up. July has already seen some great tennis with the “Game of Thrones” Pennant Final and the Xmas in July Tournament….check out the Weekly Update for results and more events scheduled for July. Read More >>>

1. Real Tennis Tournaments (Mainly Australian Open)
2. Advancement of Real Tennis (new courts / new clubs)
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.
