The Australian Open Tournament is the premier event in the Australian real tennis calendar. Entries for the tournament don’t close until later this year, but current indications are that the world’s leading men’s and women’s players will be coming to Hobart in January 2018. It is anticipated that the current world champion Cam Riviere and Rob Fahey will be playing in the tournament together with a group of other leading professional players from England and the USA. Also the leading women’s player in the world, Claire Fahey, has indicated that she is intending to play in the tournament.
There will be considerable lead up publicity to the tournament, which presents opportunities for sponsors to present their products and businesses from August until the tournament ends on the 9th of January next year.

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)
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!
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.
