Junior Match Play will start this Saturday, April 16 and is for all junior members who are interested in playing more matches and competitive points. The program is offered to all junior levels (age 7-18 years old), from Novice to High Performance.
Unlike clinics which focus on technique, coaches will primarily concentrate on the players’ decision-making skills and positioning on the court. Participants will have the opportunity to play different players of similar levels, work on match strategy, and improve their competitive edge.
Demand is typically high for this program. No-shows will impact the ability for teaching professionals to properly plan the session.
You will be contacted by end of day Wednesday for confirmation and which session you’ll be participating in.
In past seasons, prior to taking a two year break, Wanless fielded teams in both the Tennis Toronto and Intercounty Tennis Association (ICTA) Leagues.
The Tennis Toronto League is doubles play and targets club level recreational players. Matches are all held across the City.
The ICTA League competes at a somewhat higher level. Matches are held east of Yonge Street as far as Port Hope, and as far north as Richmond Hill. Teams in the ITCA league are open to any players under 18 and include both singles and double play.
Parents are responsible for transport to all away matches and to ensure their children are available to play as scheduled. Children need to be able to play full court tennis to be considered.
We will be holding tryouts for our 2022 inter-club junior teams as follows:
Team practices will be on Fridays from 4 – 6 PM. Matches take place on weekends throughout the months of May and June. The tryouts are free but there will be a cost associated with coaching and match supervision.
Once we have determined interest levels and completed the tryouts, we will confirm which leagues we will be entering.
