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.

The club is offering several classes for adults for this summer. If you are new to tennis, speak to our Head Pro about scheduling a private or semi-private lesson. 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. If you enjoy playing tennis and are looking to connect with other members, come out and play with one of our groups.
