Tennis Notice Update – Monday, June 8, 2020
As we are all aware, this summer at our beloved club will look different than years past, and this includes tennis. The safety of our members, staff and community are of utmost importance. We are very excited to be able to announce that our tennis courts will be opening to our membership on June 20, 2020. With the opening of our courts comes new guidelines and recommendations based on federal, provincial and local government restrictions and safety measures.
Prior to playing tennis at the RLWYC, all members are required to read, familiarize yourself and adhere to the documents listed below. In addition, links to Tennis Canada and the Ontario Tennis Association websites are provided and it is requested that everyone read these COVID guidelines.

Royal Lake Of The Woods Yacht Club offers tennis for everyone, whether you are a beginner, expert, competitive or a recreational player. The club offers four courts for your tennis enjoyment. Courts 1 and 2 are available for booking by members while courts 3 and 4 are reserved between the hours of 9:00am to 4:00pm for coaching for our tennis programs.
RLWYC follows the Progressive Tennis coaching program, endorsed by Tennis Canada, which enables young people to learn in a fun and interactive way and ensures immediate success for young players. Using modified tennis balls, racquets, nets and courts, young players are properly equipped to enjoy rallies and learn the fundamentals of the game early on. Skills are developed much quicker, allowing for an easy transition to full court.
The tennis programs offer instruction to all juniors from the ages of 5 to 16, whatever their skill level.
