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
to tell us about your donation if you wish to be recognised as a tournament donor.

Committee News & Updates

Court Closure & Working Bee

The Maintenance Committee has been hard at work with several projects around the club.  The current, major project is to repair some of the plaster work on the court.  To do this we will need to CLOSE THE COURT ON SATURDAY 2nd AND SUNDAY 3rd JUNE

During this time Justin Legg (Chair of the Maintenance Committee) is also holding a working bee and would love to have as much assistance from members as possible.
If you are available on Saturday or Sunday – even for a short time – to lend a hand please let us know.  Sign Up

If you want to see what other projects the Maintenance Committee are working on (and there are lots), click on the link to see their HRTC Facilities Registers.

Update on kitchen renovations

Another project the maintenance team has undertaken in the upgrade of the kitchen to include some more storage and a new wine fridge.  The renovations are almost finished and I am sure you will agree they have created a great space for hosting social events.
