WCEI TAS – AMM and Networking Evening
August 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Members are invited to the Annual Members’ Meeting to be held at 5.30 pm on Tuesday 17 August at the Real Tennis Club, 45 Davey Street, Hobart.
The meeting will be followed at around 6.00 pm by networking drinks and canapés and the opportunity to watch a Real Tennis game.
The Hobart Real Tennis Club, founded in 1875, is the oldest real tennis club in Australia and one of the oldest active clubs in the real tennis world. The game was introduced into Australia by Samuel Smith Travers in 1875, when he built the first court in Hobart.
The court is substantially unaltered from its original construction, except for the installation of electric lighting last century. The historic clubhouse, which fronts on Davey
Street, has been progressively renovated and extended over the years, but retains its original character and charm. The club is a fine example of colonial architecture.
