We had another exceptional Australian Open with many of the world's best player competing. John Lumley was the outstanding player of the event, winning both the Singles and the Doubles titles. He was pushed to 5 sets by his doubles partner, Steve Virgona, in the semi final and then 4 sets in the final by Nick Howell but was able to overcome both challenges.

Young Members End of Year Tournament - Sat. 16 December

Tuesday, 16th Jan

We had a broad array of participants in this year's End of Year Tournament with 24 players taking part and paired up for the annual Christmas tournament – the festive spirit was palpable! Some stellar handicap tennis was played between two pools on both courts. The melodic Christmas cheer was quickly replaced by the dulcet tones of the winning gallery and backchat from the deadens.

Real tennis is a high strategy racket sport with a pedigree that can be traced back to the twelfth century. It is the original racket game from which are descended most modern racket games including lawn tennis (now called tennis) and squash.

Real tennis is a unique game which provides:

  • significant physical and technical challenges for all levels of player
  • a demanding test of skill, agility, court craft and strategy
  • a handicapping system that allows players of varied ability, age and experience to compete on equal terms.

Real tennis is played by sports enthusiasts of all ages and levels. Around the world you might call the game different things – ‘real’ tennis in Australia and Britain, ‘court’ tennis in the US, and ‘jeu de paume’ in France – to players, it is simply ‘tennis’.
