Junior Lessons

Register here 

Like tennis racquets, the types of tennis balls your child uses can aid in their tennis skills development. As your child grows taller, stronger, with more fully developed strokes and hand-eye coordination, they will gradually be able to handle a tennis ball that more closely mimics an adult ball. Junior tennis balls fall into four classes: foam, red, orange and green dot. Each progressively firmer than the previous one. Subsequently, as the ball gets firmer, the height of its bounce and distance it travels down the court increases. By matching the correct progressive tennis ball to your child’s needs will promote longer rallies, greater consistency and a more positive experience on the court.

Red Tennis Balls

Red balls are slightly larger than the standard ball and travel 75% slower. They are designed for 36′ courts and for children up to eight years old.

Orange Tennis Balls

Orange balls are the same size at the standard ball, but travel 50% slower. They are designed for 60′ courts and for children up to eight years old.

Green Dot Tennis Balls

Green dot balls are the same size at the standard ball, but travel 25% slower. They are designed for full length (78′) courts and for children up to twelve years old.

Adult Leagues

Mens League

Day:  Mondays
Time: 6:00 – 9:00 pm
For Platinum Tennis Members
Fee: $50

It’s that time again! We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries so don’t delay, register and pay as soon as possible to ensure your spot!

Fall Men’s Night will run for 10 weeks, every Monday starting October 16th until December 18th
We will use the same format as past years with Courts 1,2,3 playing at 6:00 and Court 4,5,6 playing at 7:30.

Cost for the Fall session is $50.00, same as last year. All participants must be Platinum Members. Registration is now open online, or at the Front Desk.  The first 24 players to sign up and pay will be included.

Registration will be restricted to Men only until October 2nd, and if we do not have 24 Men signed up at that point, it will be open for Lady members to register until we have 24 players to fill the 6 courts.

It is imperative that each player commit to being there ready to play at the assigned times to be fair to the other players on the court. Each Player is responsible to find your own spare if you cannot make it any given week. If you do not arrange a spare, the first occasion you will be bumped down 2 courts the following week, and the second occasion you will be removed from the league, with NO REFUND!

If you want to be on the Spare List only, please email me at erichasenhuendl@shaw.ca with your name and best phone number.

See you on the Courts :))   Eric Hasenhuendl
