We are delighted to announce Ron Heifets will be returning as Head Tennis Pro for the second year.  Ron comes to us from the Valois Tennis Club, in Pointe-Claire Quebec, where he was the Head Pro and Director of Junior Tennis Programs.  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.  Ron has turned his attention to coaching as he thoroughly enjoys helping others maximize their potential on the court.  Once again, he is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and passion for tennis with our members.

Junior Tennis Program

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.

Adult Tennis Program

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.
