Our tennis community is one of the most vibrant in the Club. It is a remarkable venue where members are able to play and hone their tennis skills in a fun and welcoming atmosphere.

Tennis for Youth - Our recreational youth tennis program starts at three years of age with Munchkins Tennis, where players learn how to track the ball and improve hand eye coordination all while playing fun games. The next level is Early Starters for select age groups between six to ten and then our recreational youth stream culminates with a program for players aged eleven and over.

The Club also offers a more committed stream for youth players, ages six to eight, who are ready for a twice a week half court program. There is also a three-quarter court program for players seven to nine years old and a full court program for very committed players under the age of ten.

Our elite program, for players aged eleven and over, provides training for tournament-level players seeking to improve their provincial ranking and hopefully earn a scholarship to play tennis at a post-secondary institution (in either Canada or the U.S) or continue in tennis as a lifelong activity.

Tennis for Adults - From beginner lessons, train and play programs to competitive singles and doubles leagues, we have something for every level of player. Our hugely popular Cardio Tennis program is a great way to get fit and have fun while improving your tennis game. Also our highly trained professionals are also available for private and group lessons, upon request.
