The Thornhill Club offers tennis programming for players of all levels. We offer a wide range of activities from leisure play to a fully organized program of leagues, competitions, fun days and private and group instruction. We also have an active junior program that includes clinics, lessons, camps and an advanced tournament program. Thornhill’s HarTru Clay tennis courts are state of the art and reduce the incidence of common tennis injuries to the lower extremities. No matter your level or age, Thornhill offers all you need to excel in a fun-filled yet competitive tennis environment. The 2018 tennis schedule will be available shortly.
Our beginner’s program will introduce the basics of the game including proper grips for the fore-hand and back-hand ground-strokes, the volley and the serve. Participants will also receive an introduction to scoring and rules of tennis. Most importantly, all participants will hit a lot of balls!
Junior Tennis Clinics:
There are six clinics offered throughout the summer. Rain dates will be arranged if required.
The intermediate program will review each participant’s grip and provide instruction for any necessary adjustments. These sessions are designed to master all of the required strokes of the game. Now that participants have an understanding of tennis, these sessions will focus on the strategies and court positioning.
Advanced & Tournament Program
The advanced program will focus on fine-tuning the participant’s grip and advanced drills to develop spin variation, accuracy and consistency. Advanced strategy and court positioning for singles and doubles play will be covered to encourage success in tournament play.
