Real Tennis is coming home to Sydney

After 13 years in the wilderness, we finally have a confirmed location for Real Tennis in Sydney.  Now we urgently need your help to build our new court at the beautiful Cheltenham Recreation Club.

Why Are We So Excited?

We’ve had a few false dawns, but this time it’s for real. This time we have:

1. A signed agreement to build and use a Real Tennis court at Cheltenham Recreation Club (CRC)

2. A 30 year renewable lease to use the land.

3. A base of 26 playing members, who have represented SRTC over the past 4 years in matches across Australia.

4. Many more real tennis players in Sydney have indicated they will join our club to play on the new court.

5. No outside competition for the allocated court space, which is solely dedicated to a real tennis court.

6. Significant support from the current members at CRC – with over 95% supporting our addition to their club.

Why Cheltenham?

Location – Just off the M2, Cheltenham is 15 minutes from the Harbour Bridge, and 35 minutes from Sydney Airport

Facilities – The club already has tennis courts, croquet and lawn bowls greens. There is also a 2 storey clubhouse containing a cafe, commercial
restaurant and bar.

Current members – CRC already has 180 members across its tennis, croquet and bowls sections. We expect to substantially increase that number when we combine forces.

Vibrant Local Community – The suburb of Cheltenham, and its neighbours Beecroft, Epping, North Epping, and South Turamurra provide major opportunities for new membership.

Independent Schools – Cheltenham Ladies College, Abbotsleigh and Knox Schools are close by – offering opportunities for inter varsity
matches and to grow our youth membership.
