Junior Tennis Lessons at Wanless Park

One of Toronto’s best-known Junior Tennis programs is run by our Head Pro, Arthur Wolf (Tennis Canada – Certified) Coach 2 and Club Pro 3, who will be returning for his 22nd season with his team of certified instructors and assistants.

The Wanless Junior Lesson Program

The Wanless Junior Lesson Program is a comprehensive course that includes one of our lesson clinics scheduled throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall, a Wanless Tennis t-shirt and entry to the Saturday Morning Fun Program. The Junior Lesson Program culminates in participation in one of our Wanless Junior Tennis Teams. At Wanless Tennis, our pathway to success uses the principles of Progressive Tennis in all of our lesson programs. The program design includes a six-to-one student-to-instructor ratio target, and only qualified certified instructors are used.
