Kees Ludekens

Kees Ludekens, senior real tennis professional

Kees (pronounced ‘Case’) is our Senior Professional at the club and is responsible for a very large part of our recent successes.

Originally from Sri Lanka, Kees first got hooked on the game in Melbourne, Australia – he professes to have played solidly for three weeks from the moment he first stepped on court.

Kees has recently started playing a small amount of competitive tennis again after having retired because of knee trouble. He enjoyed it so much he has started a serious attempt to bring himself back to match fitness.

He has twice made it to the second round of the British Open and won the Browning Cup and the 10-19 Handicap Category Tournament.

Kees is one of the games best coaches and is a great supporter of up and coming players, notably Alexis Hombrecher, who he coached through his time for CURTC in Division 1 of the National League.

Kees worked at Oxford University for a number of years. He then accepted the position of assistant professional to Lachlan Deuchar, the former world No.1 at The Harbour Club in 1994.

He sees himself very much as a club pro, and has guided CURTC from a 1 court club with 70 members to its current status of 2 courts and 250 members.

Kees is married to Louise (who is also an active member of the club) and has two children, Nina and Jim.
