Junior Lessons at Wanless Tennis

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.


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 29th season with his team of certified instructors and assistants.

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.

Tennis Clinics and Dates for 2022

We offer clinics that are customized for different skill levels of our junior members. We believe in building strong tennis skills and sportsmanship from a young age and nurturing this skillset through each level – from Tiny Tykes through Intermediate levels to High Performance. Learn more about the different levels on our Progressive Tennis page.

Format and Cost

We have 2 formats of the Junior Lesson Program this year. Both consist of 8 hours of instruction. The Weekday clinics run on either Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday for 4 weeks. Our new Sunday clinics are every Sunday for 8 weeks. All of the details for each of the clinics are outlined in the tabs below, including duration, days and times for the different levels.

  • TINY TYKES – ages 4 to 5 using red balls
  • TYKES – ages 6 to 7 using red balls
  • NOVICE – ages 7 to 9 using orange balls
  • INTERMEDIATE – ages 10 and up using green dot balls
  • RECREATIONAL ADVANCED – using yellow balls
  • COMPETITIVE ADVANCED – using yellow balls

The cost of each clinic is $155. You must be a member. Junior memberships are available.

Please note that the Saturday Morning Fun Program is not being offered this year. Should you find your program is sold out please email the clubhouse with your preferred clinics so we can determine demand for additional classes.
