Dear RTC Members,


We hope you have had a great tennis season and have been enjoying the perfect summer weather of late. To support our ongoing effort to make our club a welcoming environment with high-performance tennis courts, we are thrilled to announce that our court resurfacing work will commence on August 29th and conclude by the end of September (weather pending). As many know, this resurfacing is required every ~5 years because of tree root activity beneath the courts, weather-caused erosion, and usage. Work must be done this time of year as the spring is too cold, and our summer months are too busy to close for capital improvement work. Your patience and understanding are deeply appreciated.


We kindly ask that you bear with us since the weather in September can be volatile; all the best-laid plans and schedules can cause delays! We will do our best to communicate all schedule changes and update you on progress. Here’s what we know right now: 


Construction Schedule Courts 7&8 

  • August 29th to September 5th 

  • Courts 1-6 will be available for play except for the following dates and times.

  • Monday, August 29th to Friday, September 2nd, from 9 am-Noon.


Construction Schedule Courts 1-6

  • Monday, September 12th, with a completion target date of the 23rd. 

  • During this time, courts 7&8 will be available for play, however, in a minimal capacity. 

  • Prepaid after-school junior clinics and adult programs will run, and courts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will do our best to accommodate as much member play as possible. We ask that you limit the number of times you play to allow as many members to enjoy the courts as possible.


For this “renovation,” we are taking extra measures (with added cost) to bring the courts up to a higher standard of play, including fibreglass work on courts one and three, where there are glaring cracking issues from the tree roots. We have also purchased eight new tennis nets for the 2023 season. 


We are also working closely with the City of Toronto Parks and Recreation and the forestry department to address the overgrowth of the surrounding trees. This is a slow-moving process as city resources have been significantly compromised; we hope to complete the significant trimming of the trees before the first snowfall. 


The pandemic has pushed our court resurfacing schedule off by a couple of seasons, so we greatly appreciate your patience and ongoing support. 


Thank you, 

Richard Nicolson, 

On behalf of the board of directors.
