Lawrence Park Tennis Club has a vibrant and popular Junior tennis program. Our Spring and Fall programs offer our Junior members (up to age 16) tennis instruction to help them learn, develop and improve on their tennis skills. Junior members can choose one (or more) days of tennis instruction per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday). We also offer a half day tennis camp option in the summer!
Our recreational junior programs at Lawrence Park Tennis Club have something for every age group. Our fabulous team of tennis professionals, including Program Director, Alastair Millar, our Head Pro, Valerie Ushanova, and their team, use systematic “Program Pathways” which make it easy to see where to start your junior player off and see how they progress through the different stages of a “Progressive Tennis” curriculum. Our goal is to build a love of tennis that will stay with junior members through their lifetimes.
To participate in our Junior Program, you must sign up as a Junior Member LPTC which also gives junior players access to play on the courts on Saturdays.
- Junior Membership – $60/season; you can join as a playing member or add on instruction through our spring, summer or fall junior programs; juniors are also permitted to use the courts during family time and with an Adult member (click here to become an LPTC junior member). Spring of 2019 registration will open in early 2019.
