New this Year:  Open Forum with the Board on Sunday, June 28th

Our members care--they write, email, phone, and tell us when they have concerns, suggestions, even compliments.  We love to hear from you so we know what members want and what changes and innovations might make our Club even better.  It is a real balancing act to keep everyone happy when we have such a diverse demographic. Some members only want to play singles, some only doubles; some want a lot of organized activities and others "just want to hit". More social events? More competitive events? What do you think? 

As an almost totally new Board this year we want to be open and transparent. We know members have questions and ideas and we'd like to hear them in a casual, but dedicated format. And so, we are holding an "Open Forum" on Sunday, June 28th, from 2 to 4 pm, where we can all have the opportunity to have a conversation, ask questions, share perspectives. There is no formal presentation--this is a two-way exchange where several Board members will be available to answer questions, report on our progress, and find out what is concerning you. Based on participation and feedback, we hope this will be a regular event.

Remember we're all members and want to ensure the Club is the best it can be.  The Open Forum will take place in the clubhouse during our Sunday Tea & Tennis, so come join us for this new event. 
June 17th
Last week we announced our next free Adult/Intermediate Clinic will be held on Wed. June 17th with sessions at 6:00 pm and at 7:00 pm. We still have openings for both sessions, so if you're interested in tuning up your game and getting helpful tips from our club pros, please register for either 6 - 7 pm or 7 - 8 pm i.e. one session per person, by clicking on the Clinic Sign-Up Form button below and submitting the sign-up form no later than Tues. June 16th at 7:00 pm. These clinics should provide for a great way to tune up your game. For more information contact our Games Chair, Cecelia Thng at
Clinic Sign-Up Form


It's hard to think about the end of the season when we're only 6 weeks into it, but we want you to mark this date: November 7th, for our end of season celebration. This year we have booked a new venue--Miller Tavern--up at Yonge and York Mills where good food, good drink and good company will be served. Miller Tavern is conveniently located near the York Mills subway station with lots of parking nearby. The festivities start at 7:00 pm and will go until.....? More details will be provided closer to the date, but please mark your calendars.


This is just a reminder that starting Mon. June 22nd, Junior Summer Camp begins from 1:00- 4:00 pm, Mon. to Fri. Court sweeping and maintenance will be done immediately following from 4:00 - 5:00 pm for the duration of the Camp until Aug 14th. 
We welcome feedback and suggestions from our members to help improve the Club and enhance member experience. For those who don't know, we have "Compliments, Suggestions, Concerns" forms located in the clubhouse in the plastic holder on the side table. They can be deposited into the Guest Fee box for forwarding to the Board. We will highlight questions / comments and responses in our newsletters. You do not need to include your name, but it's helpful in case we need to clarify your suggestion / comment. You may also email comments to:
