2018 Tryout Process

Wanless has elected this year to have outside professionals conduct all tryouts for its Teams. These individuals will determine who will be on each of the Club’s 6 Teams. They are certified tennis professionals with Tennis Canada and are all well versed in running tryouts. Tryout dates for each Team can be found under the Women’s Tennis Teams and Men’s Tennis Teams sections below. NEW for this year: tryouts will be conducted indoors in order to avoid inclement weather.

Registration

Registration for team tryouts is mandatory, so if you are interested in trying out for one or more teams, PLEASE REGISTER HERE. It is strongly recommended that each person attend 2 tryouts. The cost is $10 regardless of how many tryout sessions you attend.

Coaching

In addition, the Board is happy to continue the initiative of having all Teams coached this season to help elevate their prowess. The coaching cost is $20 per person per 2 hour practice for a maximum of 8 weeks in May and June. It will cost no more than $160 per team member to be a part of the team. This will cover all professionally coached practices. Participation is voluntary but highly encouraged.
