As well, we have winter program from October to May so tennis lessons are offered year round.

The Tennis for Schools Program offered by Tennis NWT is based on a curriculum created by Tennis Canada in collaboration with Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada). The curriculum, which is based on Progressive Tennis principles, delivers quality programming that supports the development of fundamental hand-eye coordination and motor skills. It can be offered during already scheduled physical education classes in the same and familiar setting of the school gymnasium.
