FERGUS – The Fergus Tennis Club (FTC) has planned a variety of programs to encourage participation during the upcoming season.
There will be a six-week learn-to-play program for adults, with no membership required, plus a free program for kids aged 6-14 and after-school clinics for juniors (Grades 3 to 12).
Opportunities will be provided for people to drop in and play, in the categories of beginner, junior, intermediate and advanced, and house league play for beginners, women, men and mixed.
There will be half-day and full-day summer camps, with tennis, rugby and combined camps available.
“The focus of the Fergus Tennis Club is to promote family, fitness and friendship through the game of tennis,” the club said in a press release. “Programs are designed to be inclusive and provide opportunities for members of this community to enjoy the sport in a welcoming and fun environment.”
For those who prefer to play on their own rather than participating in organized programs, open court time is available at both the Tower Street courts (open to FTC members) and sportsplex courts (open to FTC members and the general public).
The Fergus Tennis Club is operated entirely by volunteers.
The club is hosting its annual Open House and Registration Day on May 4, from 10am to 3pm at the Tower Street Courts. Everyone is invited to come out and meet tennis pro Dave Rowat, FTC volunteers and the new club mascot.
People can sign up for programs, enjoy a BBQ, try out tennis racquets, learn about racquet stringing, try their hand at pickle ball. Visit www.fergustennisclub.ca for more information on the club, programs and/or to register online.
