League Teams

LPTC has a long history in competitive community tennis. Historically, we have fielded five adult league teams: InterCounty A, InterCounty C, and three daytime Ladies’ Teams in the Toronto Ladies’ Tennis League and North York Tennis Association and two Junior teams, U12 and U18 in the Tennis Toronto Junior Doubles League. All these teams play competitive doubles against other clubs around Toronto. Matches alternate between Lawrence Park Tennis Club and other clubs.

To join the adult teams, members try out during the designated tryout sessions in April and May (dates will be sent to members in our Between the Lines newsletter in the spring), and must be available to play most dates of the league matches. Tryouts are held indoors so that weather is not a factor and a small fee is charged to cover court fees. Team matches and practices are shown on our Club calendar once the schedule for the summer has been set, and in the court 3 reservation binder (available at the Clubhouse) to prevent double booking.

Members who have general questions should email the Games Director at Games@LawrenceParkTennisClub.ca or contact the appropriate Team Captain as shown below.

InterCounty A and C Teams

Our two InterCounty Teams each consist of members who compete in men’s doubles, ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles from mid-May to mid-August. The A team is geared for players at the 4.5 level and above; and the C team at 3.5 and above.

Home and away matches start at 7pm on Thursday evenings for both teams. All members are welcome to try out in late April/early May and must try out to be eligible for the team. Members may only play for one of these teams. Practice time for both these teams is Sunday afternoon (for 1.5 hours, alternating the starting time from either 4pm or 5:30pm).

Consideration is being given to adding another team option for our Junior members; stay tuned!

Team Tryouts Assessment Criteria

We strive to run a thoughtful and inclusive team tryout process each spring and encourage members to give competitive interclub play a try if they are interested. Where there are more candidates than available spots on our teams, coaches use the following criteria to assess players’ abilities: Team Tryouts Assessment Criteria.
