The Real Tennis Club of Hobart is the oldest of the four remaining clubs in Australia. Dating back to the building of the court in 1875 on the site of a former brewery on Macquarie Street, Hobart’s club is hidden in plain sight.

But what is real tennis, you ask? Step inside the heritage-listed sandstone building opposite St David’s Park to find out; and catch a game while you’re there.

Open: Saturday 11 November 2023, 10 am – 1 pm


*  On Saturday, 11 November, Open House Hobart ask everyone to observe a minute silence at 11 am for Remembrance Day.
