How can I improve my tennis skills?
Take a few Private Lessons with our Head Pro Mike to fully understand and execute the main fundamentals of tennis. Once you're able to consistently hit the ball back and forth join us on Monday & Friday for our Drop-ins.
How does the Monday & Friday Drop-In work?
Every Monday & Friday from 7pm - 10pm players will be matched up on a court depending on their playing ability. There will be a coordinator at the club so all you need to do is show up ready to play with your racquet and some water. You do not need to bring anyone with you, because you will be matched up once you arrive. Changeovers will happen every 30-45 minutes depending on the number of players waiting. You will play singles/doubles with men or women, it all depends on your playing ability.
How do the Club Championships work?
You will be placed on the draw and you will be able to challenge others who are 3 ranks ahead of you or anyone ranked below you. Depending on how many wins and losses you have your rank on the competition will change.
How does House-League work?
Every Wednesday night from 7pm - 11pm House-League will be running. If you join House-League you will be playing at a different time every week ( 7-8, 8-9, 9-10, 10-11), 1-hour matches. You will be able to view the schedule for the entire season online so you can plan accordingly. All you need to do is show up for your match ready to play with your racquet and some water. If you are unable to attend your scheduled match you can use the provided Sub-List to find a sub, you MUST find a sub for each match you cannot attend.
What does being a sub for House-League mean?
As a sub for House-League you will be placed on a list for House-League regulars to contact when they are unable to make a match. As a sub you will be able to choose if you want to take the match or not. Subs have no commitment, you have full control over the matches you cover or don't cover. The Sub-List will have your availability, email and phone number (you can opt-out of providing your phone number).
How does Intercounty work?
Our Intercounty Team is a competitive team of individuals who travel to different clubs and play competitive doubles matches. There are four types of matches, mens, womens, mixed & gender-neutral. This activity has no cost but when we play matches at home the team will be responsible for providing food. For Intercounty we recommend players who can confidently and consistently play doubles, a 3.0 rating or higher would be a good fit for Intercounty but try-outs will determine if you make the team or not.
How will I know when a court is free?
Can I book a court?
Yes! Please use our Court Booking System on the left-hand corner on the main page.
How do I find someone to play with?
From the mobile app, log in and choose Player Directory from the Dashboard.
From a browser, log in to Court Reserve and click Player Directory at the top of the page.
If you do not want your information listed in this directory, you can choose the checkbox 'Hide my Personal Information from my club/organization's public member directories' found under Personal Information.
There is a search field to filter and refine your search criteria, but it requires you to match at least 3 characters of the first or last name. (Apologies to members with 2 letter last names!) You can also sort any of the three fields in ascending or descending order by clicking on the column header to expose the sort arrow.
Adding a tennis rating to your profile allows you to find people to play with who are of similar skill level and could qualify you to register for various club events such as Houseleague and Inter-County team tryouts.
