Play is recreational in nature with members ranging from intermediate to advanced and everything in between. The club holds a number of social activities and tournaments throughout the year for its members.
Tennis balls and nets are provided, but please bring your own racquet or rent one at the front desk of Max Bell Centre.
Due to the limited space and availability of courts on campus, the Tennis Club has a capacity of 30 members for each semester.
At the beginning of each semester, the Club uses the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) to check that a tennis player meets an eligibility requirement.
This system is used to create a safe environment and help players to find partners who have the relative same level of tennis playing.
Since the limitation of courts and availabilities, we do not provide coaching programs to our members. So the basic tennis skills of Ground Strokes (forehand & backhand), Return of Serve, Net Play and Serve are required for everyone who is interested in joining the Club.
The players who meet the NTRP 3.5 level of tennis will join the main Roster A, and the players who do not meet the NTRP 3.5 level will join the Roster B. Roster A and Roster B will play on different time/courts. However, all members including both rosters will have equal access to any social events and tournaments.
How to join
We hold a tennis skills assessment during the first two weeks of each semester. Anyone who are interested in joining the club is required to come in for a free visit, and we will assess your tennis skills level in order to have the right placement for you.
