The first group of Dutch real tennis players visiting England

Between 1987-1992 the Dutch RTA organised its National Real Tennis Championships at Seacourt, during which years the players received excellent training from Chris Bray, Peter Brake and Seacourt's headpro Peter Dawes. Ned Danby, his son Nick and other Seacourt members showed sincere interest in the progress all the Dutch players were making and regularly watched the semi-finals and finals from the dedans.

Since 1993 the Dutch RTA Championships have been held at The Oratory. By courtesy of Lady Rose a number of champion matches are also played in the marvellous, historical setting of Hardwick House tennis court. The Oratory, with its first-rate sporting facilties such as lawn tennis courts, 9-hole golfcourse and its indoor swimming-pool, has attracted a large number of participants. The most common number of players that have participated in the Dutch RTA championships from 1993 onwards, is between 15-20. Theo Bollerman en Feikje Nassy have by far won the largest number of titles.
