Huis ter Kleef, one of three kaatsbaan buildings that have survived, was built by Hendrik van Brederode, Holland’s famous rebellion leader.
Built at about the same time as the court at Breda, with similar measurements, according to plan of 1625. May well have been built as an open court, but was roofed when the 1625 plan was made. Tennis court served different functions through its long history. On 1 February 2006 the Real Tennis Club Huis ter Kleef has received formal permission from the owner of the monument, the City of Haarlem, to acquire funds to have the building restored to its original function.
