Kitchen Renovation

Our Committee is pleased to report that the scheduled renovation work of the Trophy Room kitchen is due to commence from this Monday morning (October 3rd) and will run until approximately Saturday October 8th. We have been advised by the various trades that there should be very little disruption to all other areas of the Club – except perhaps a little noise, but we do apologise for any inconvenience should it occur during the course of the work. Tennis will continue as usual….and we are all sure the end result will be well worth while.

One area of the works that WILL need a little consideration however will be the Club’s car parking arrangements during this time. It is likely that the various trades will use two of our current car parking spaces and members playing at the Club next week are advised to do their best to find alternate methods of getting to the Club as they MAY be forced to park elsewhere.

Cancellation Policy

The Hobart Real Tennis Club’s cancellation policy has recently been reviewed by our committee and all HRTC members are urged to make themselves aware of the revised policy – effective October 1st.

The logic for a fee if the court is not re-booked is obvious. However, even if the court is re-booked, it involves some effort on the part of the Pros to find someone in the case of a late cancellation. Members cancelling booked courts will now be required to give 24 hours notice to avoid cancellation charges. Members wishing to apply for special consideration on such charges can do so by making a formal application to the Club Treasurer. Please see our revised schedule of fees and charges below:

Cancellation Fees – less than 24 hours

Doubles Court NOT re-booked $12.50 Court re-booked $7.00
Singles Court NOT re-booked $30.00 Court re-booked $10.00
Juniors Court NOT re-booked $15.00 Court re-booked  $ 7.50
