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 28th 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 2021
