International Tennis Day across the Australian Clubs - Thu. 20 June

Wednesday, 3rd Jul

International Tennis Day 2024 (20 June) around the Australian Clubs marked a number of major milestones:

RMTC - celebrated ITD on the 50th Year Anniversary of our Sherwood Street clubhouse - with a mix of young players developing their game, seasoned players in for their regular matches and senior members (both playing and retired) attending Thursday lunch. Around the dining table there were many long stories of matches from the past with some recalling playing way back 50 years ago to our original court at Exhibition Street. There is a big week of tennis and social events in mid October (19-26 October 2024), so let the Pros know if you can join in the fun!

WELCOME TO REAL TENNIS

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’.
