Real Tennis moves forward in Haarlem

The Dutch effort to secure their own court is�at last regaining momentum. Almost five years ago the owner of huis ter kleef (the City of Haarlem) permitted�the�stichting huis ter kleef (foundation) to acquire the huis ter kleef monument dating from 1560 and to restore the court (de kaatsbaan). Until recently a stumbling block has been�agreeing a price with�the city. However, in the last few weeks an agreement has been reached with Haarlem, meaning�the fundraising phase for the restoration can now start in earnest.�The money to acquire ownership of the kaatsbaan is already guaranteed,�so this really is a flying start and�rapidly becoming a very serious project!
