RMTC President's Note - New Booking System

Tuesday, 31st Oct

I am writing to you regarding the clubs booking system. Unfortunately, the current system (20 years old) has become increasingly unstable and is unable to meet the demands of users. It has also become more expensive to run. We also need to adjust our system to reflect current Australian legislation with respect to data security.

As a result a subcommittee was formed to look at all the alternatives to replace the existing system. After exhaustive review a contract was awarded to Jesse Laeuchli to build a new system for us.

This system will go live on the 1st of November. When you look up RT Booking (the old system) you will immediately be redirected to

The Barry Toates Trophy (RMTC vs SRTC) - Sat. 23 September

Wednesday, 11th Oct

A large team of 12 players made the trip to the RMTC to play for Sydney in the annual Barry Toates Trophy, which this year was attended and presented by the man himself. In the end RMTC won by 16 sets to 4 but there were many close games towards the end of the day as the travellers reacquainted themselves with the real game of tennis.

Many thanks to Richard Pagone for organising a sumptuous feast here at the Club on Saturday night for all the players.

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’.
