Both Tennis Clubs in the NWT offer tennis lessons for children. Lessons usually begin in June and continue throughout the summer. As well, we have winter program from October to May so tennis lessons are offered year round. Group lessons are designed for everyone, depending on ability and concentrate on providing participants with the essential skills necessary to play tennis. Tennis Canada certified coaches are available in both communities. Junior high performance lessons are also offered by the Tennis NWT year round. Several Junior and Open tournaments offer everyone a chance to showcase their tennis skills, meet new friends and get lots of exercise, all in an environment of friendly competition.
