Coaches

Ron-Heifets-tennis

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Ron Heifets as Head Tennis Pro.  Ron comes to us from the Valois Tennis Club, in Pointe-Claire Quebec, where he has been the Head Pro and Director of Junior Tennis Programs for the last 3 years.  Ron is passionate about tennis.  Playing since the age of 7 when his grandfather gave him his first racquet, Ron excelled in the sport in his early teens.  He was ranked as one of the top 5 players in Quebec at age 14 and qualified to play at the Canadian National Championships.  For the last 5 years, Ron has turned his attention to coaching as he thoroughly enjoys helping others maximize their potential on the court.  He is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and passion for tennis with our members.  Please welcome Ron to the club and beautiful Lake of the Woods

Junior Tennis Camps

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 camps offer instruction to all juniors from the ages of 5 to 16, whatever their skill level.

If you are looking to improve your game, you may enjoy our Adult Clinic on Tuesdays or for action packed doubles play, come and join in the Triple Threat sessions.
