We welcome you to Hobart Out Tennis Club

Introduction

Here at Hobart Out Tennis (HOT), we organise tennis socials and events around Tasmania. Whilst we primarily organise these activities for the LGBTQIA+ community,  everyone is welcome.

We aim to provide a safe and inclusive space where everyone can be themselves while enjoying a fun game of tennis, whether socially or competitively!

Currently, we have weekly socials every Tuesday at the Domain Tennis Centre from 5.30 to 7.30 p.m. Go to our Social Tennis page for more details or see below poster. The Domain Tennis Centre is located at 2 Davies Ave, Queens Domain, Hobart.

We also hold annual tournaments as part of the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) World Tour. In 2021 we celebrated our fifth GLTA Tournament over the weekend of Friday 15 to Sunday 17 January. They just get better and better each year! Go to our Facebook page for tournament pics. For those that love stats: 65 players, 86 entries, 117 matches over 3 days of play competing in 11 events across 13 courts. Congratulations to all players! We'd also like to thank their supporters for all the cheering and buzz around the courts. To our contributors thanks for fantastic giveaways and prizes; the Domain Tennis Centre, Tennis Tas, Stringlab, Beauty and the Bees Tasmania, Red Parka, Bridestone Lavendar, Skin Cancer Tasmania, TasPride, and Dan Murphy's. We will be planning the next GLTA Tournament for January 2022, go to our Tournament page for more details as they become available!

The Committe is dedicated to facilitating  LGBTQIA+ community engagement through tennis and promote inclusion to create a positive sense of community belonging. In 2021 we are working hard to offer some new and exciting opportunities, including a Roadshow Social for players outside Hobart and a Winter Tournament. Follow us on Facebook to learn more and sign up to become a member, we'd love to meet you.

We are affiliated with Tennis Tasmania, abide by Tennis Australia national policies and assist with advice on important documents within this sport, such as the recently released Transgender Inclusion Guidelines for Community Tennis. See below link for more information
