The Wanless Board is following the City of Toronto’s protocols to aid in helping to keep our members, staff, and community safe and healthy when using our facility.


We welcome members of all ages and ability levels to come and join one of Wanless’ adult tennis programs. No matter your skill level, you will have fun, meet some new people, and get fit in our programs, which are designed to enhance your game.

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 29th season.

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.”
