Summer Opening Tennis Round Robin & BBQ: What a day!

What an amazing turnout with 40 people playing in RSC’s Summer Tennis Opening Weekend Round Robin on Saturday May 4. Everyone was happy to be able to play in our indoor courts, as Mother Nature has not been cooperating with us. The mood was festive and the tennis was excellent, as were the Rotation Stations with Tennis Pro Skills Drills with Pro Jeremy, Volleyball in the Multi-Sport Dome with General Manager Donna, and Tennis Fit on the Grass with Natalya. Congratulations to our Head Pro Sacha for organizing a tremendous day … and to all the players, thank you for coming out!

RSC’s Weekly Round Robin Schedule (all skill levels) will be announced this week – something for everyone – stay tuned!

This was followed by our RSC’s Annual Summer Opening Social BBQ where The Bridge Public House staff were able to show off their BBQ skills, everybody was socializing and we were finally able to enjoy some outdoor time.


Clay Tennis Courts….Coming Soon!

We’ve been battling the rains along with much of Ottawa to get our Clay Courts ready for you as quickly as we can, but we’re still a few days away. Our Property Manager Mike Cadieux is making big headway on the sunny dry days with his crews working hard. All 7 courts have been scraped, and we are spreading new clay as the courts become dry enough. Our hope is to have the majority of the clay courts available by next weekend (May 11-12). Of course, this is all weather dependent.

Once they are ready for play, we will send a note to all Summer Tennis Pass Holders to give them advance notice before the Walk-On’s.

To keep up-to-date on the progress of our Clay Court Preparation and Opening, we recommend you follow us on Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (click on the link that suits you best)- as we will be updating regularly!

Remember, Summer Tennis Pass Holders can book indoor hard tennis courts with a 50% discount. This means the courts are only $20/hour during prime time, and $15/hour during early morning weekdays. Excellent value on the rainy days and shoulder season!

New LED lights: Best Outdoor Tennis Lighting in the City

We made a big investment decision this year – to upgrade the Outdoor Clay lighting to LED. Given we have the BEST indoor tennis court lighting in the city – we also wanted to ensure that we had the best outdoor tennis court lighting in the city!

Another incentive to come play outdoors tennis on clay at RSC!

Summer Tennis Pass Holder Packages: Come Pick them Up!

Your Summer Tennis Pass Holder Packages are ready for pick-up, so come and get them! Inside the package you’ll find the following:

  • Tennis and Fitness Schedule: As Pass Holders, you get 25% discount
  • Yoga Schedule: 18 classes per week with Ottawa’s best yoga teachers

Ladders and Round Robins: Starting the Week of May 13

An important part of any tennis community are the Ladders and Round Robins! An easy way to ensure that you have regular games, meet new people, and challenge yourself.

Every month you can participate in a new Ladder – May, June, July, August, September. There is a 1-time Sign-Up fee ($40 regular, $30 for Pass Holders), plus tax. This Sign-Up gives you access to all 5 months of ladders.

Our Head Pro Sacha has already opening up Ladder Registration for May. It’ll be a mini-Ladder (May 13 to 31), given the wet spring we’ve had.

Since moving to Ottawa in 2008, he has been involved in many different groups including the seven-piece soul band he leads called the Hornettes, and Little Bones, Ottawa’s original Tragically Hip tribute act. Jeff is currently writing and recording a long-overdue solo record influenced by the classic rock, gospel hymns, and old soul music he was raised on.
