May News - Juniors
After-School and Weekend Lesson Program
We are currently in the last week of our first session of our popular Junior Lesson Program. The next session begins Tuesday May 23. Don’t delay in registering your junior for the next session.
Please note, there are no lessons on the May long weekend (Sunday May 21 and Monday May 22).
You must be a member of the club to take lessons, but Junior memberships are always available. See the website for details.
Wanless Tennis Summer Camps, one of North Toronto’s most popular programs, are designed for juniors from 5 to 15 years of age and is a great way to improve tennis skills, instill confidence and independence, and develop new friendships. Registration is open with half day options (morning or afternoon) or full day including supervised lunch, see website for details.
- Attendees must be at least 5 years old at the time of the Camp. If your child is 4, special permission may be granted if they turn 5 in 2023.
- Multi-Sport Component. While this is a tennis camp we will use part of the time, especially the warm up, to break up the day, by exploring other games like baseball, soccer, basketball, etc., to further develop fundamental movement and physical literacy skills which are transferable to tennis in fun and engaging ways! The better the athlete, the better the tennis player.
- Registration for camp will be done by age and level.
Junior Team Play
The Wanless Junior Teams started their league play early May - you can catch our Junior U14 & U18 Teams Saturday 5 to 7 PM and the ICTA U12 team will also be competing from 3 to 5 PM. If you are a junior player or parent of a junior player who wants to know more about Team Match play, drop by to see the Wanless Junior team in action.

Donate to Philpott Children’s Tennis Fund
We encourage the community to support the Doug Philpott Inner-City Children’s Tennis Fund. You can do this by purchasing a donation in our on-line store. You will receive a charitable receipt at the end of the year from the Fund.
Since 1991, the Philpott Children’s Tennis Fund has helped introduce Toronto’s inner-city children to tennis. Founded out of a desire to honour the memory of Doug Philpott – one of the great folk heroes of Canadian tennis – the Fund provides free lessons, from qualified coaches and instructors, to kids throughout Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods. For more information, see our website.
