    Due to some very unfortunate technical issues we have had to postpone the Dutchlink Rabobank Tennis Tournament for this coming Sunday 16 November. We are very sorry about this but currently our registration system does not work and we cannot hold a tournament without knowing who is coming.

    At this time we are looking to reschedule for the end of February or the beginning of March. As soon as the tennis park is booked, we will inform you about the exact date.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we do hope to see you all around February/March.

    For a long time, the Opera House had 3 major classical orchestras on their wish list to come and perform. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was one of them and this finally happened in December of 2013. To get this orchestra to perform at the Sydney Opera House has been a major undertaking that took a full year to organise.
