Kids Lessons

We will be using progressive tennis to introduce proper fundamentals and good technique at all stages of learning.

Each lesson will focus on learning proper technique and skill development with an opportunity to use the skills in both practice and play.

To enhance the learning each group class will be a 6:1 student: teacher ratio. Sessions consist of one hour lessons for 8 consecutive weeks.

Adult Lessons

Our lessons will focus on developing the skills and techniques that will allow the students to rally and play games.

As well as developing strokes, students will learn proper scoring, tennis etiquette and proper positioning to be able to play a social game of singles and doubles.

Class sizes are 6:1 student to teacher ratio. Sessions consist of one hour lessons for 8 consecutive weeks.


Q. How many weeks are going to be in each session?

A. Each session is going to be 8 weeks long. We will be running 2 sessions. The Spring session starts at the beginning of May and the Summer session starts at the beginning of July. If you miss the start of the session, you may still register it spaces available. Call us at (905) 499-3860 for more information.

Q. What do I have to bring to my lesson?

A. Shoes: You need to wear closed-toed running shoes to the lessons. If anything else is worn to the lesson, due to injury risks, we will not allow participation in the lesson.

Appropriate Sport Clothing: You must wear clothing that you are able to run and move in

Racquet: If you have your own tennis racquet, please bring it to the lessons. If you do not have a tennis racquet of your own, we have tennis racquet that we can provide for the duration of the lesson. If you have a racquet, but are unsure if it is appropriate, please bring it and one of our coaches can let you know! If you would like to purchase a racquet for your child, we will be selling Junior Tennis racquet (19″, 21″, 23″, 25″) for $35.

Water bottles: Please make sure that you bring a water bottle to the lessons. When you are playing tennis, you expend a lot of energy, sweat and will have to drink to stay hydrated properly

Sunscreen: When you play tennis, you will be in the sun for an hour straight. We don’t want anyone coming home with sunburns, so please bring sunscreen or apply it before the lesson begins.

Q. What happens if it rains?

A. Before the lesson: If there is rain before the lesson begins, the coach will try to make the determination approximately 30 minutes before the lesson is scheduled to begin, however the time is subject to change. Also, you can give us a call at (905) 499-3860.

During the lesson: If there is rain during the lesson, we may have to stop the lesson prematurely due to safety concerns. If the lesson has reached 30 minutes, the lesson will be counted. If that mark is not met, the lesson will be made up in a subsequent week. This will be arranged by your coach.

In the event of cancellation due to rain an email will be sent using the email address you used when you registered through trackmytennis.

Q. What kind of shoes do I need?

A. You need to wear closed-toed running shoes to the lessons. If anything else is worn to the lesson, due to injury risks, we will not allow participation in the lesson.

Tennis specific shoes, which can be purchased at a number of locations including the Racquet Guys in Markham are very useful for tennis and injury prevention. They have increased lateral stability that they provide, however at recreational lessons they are not necessary.

Q. Where are the lessons going to be held?

A. The Richmond Hill Lawn Tennis Club - located at Crosby Park, 167 Newkirk Road, adjacent to the Centennial Pool.

Q. Where can I buy a racquet?

A. You can purchase a tennis racquet from a number of locations. If you are looking to purchase a tennis racquet for children or adults, start with Walmart, Sport Chek or the Racquet Guys, a qualified seller with years of experience and will be able to set you up with any tennis products that you may need.

Q. Will there be assessments for the lessons?

A. We will be holding assessment dates prior to the start of the season. We strongly encourage everyone to come out to one of these dates so that we can ensure that everyone is placed in the correct lesson to ensure the best learning environment! Stay tuned for assessment dates.

Q. Can I change my lesson time
