Clinics are led by our club’s very qualified Instruction Team under the guidance of our Head Pro, Arthur Wolf (Tennis Canada – Certified Coach 2 and Club Pro 3), who will be returning for his 27th season.

Choose from daytime, evening and weekend clinics that fit best with your schedule.

Learn proper technique, correct old bad habits and avoid nagging injuries. Meet other members of your own playing ability socially while exercising and having FUN together. Improve your own game using video analysis and radar gun.

q: “Why should I take a group lesson?”

a: “Tennis requires both sending & reception skills. It is easier to develop reception skills in a group lesson format hitting against numerous partners.”
