Can I request my child be grouped with another child?
Answer – Yes, if space is available, we will do our best to accommodate.

My child has little to no previous experience in tennis. Are they still able to register for your programs?
Answer – Yes, we accept all levels of play. Our programs allow for everyone to take part, learn, have fun and feel comfortable right away.

How often should a junior practice?
Answer – The amount of time one should practice depends on age, skill, and individual goals.

Do I need to provide a racquet and balls and for my child?
Answer – We will provide all the balls for our programs. We can supply racquets if required, however, we do promote that each player brings their own.

Answer – Athletic shoes, athletic clothing that they can move in and a water bottle. Players will not be allowed to play in flip flops or sandals.

What methods of payment do you accept?
Answer – We currently accept cheques, cash, debit, e transfer, and credit cards. All cheques should be made payable to Ottawa New Edinburgh Club.

Are programs cancelled when it rains?
Answer- It depends. During light rain, or if the courts are wet but it has stopped raining, programs may be delayed as we attempt to dry the courts. Programs will be canceled if the courts are too wet to dry or if it’s still raining and the forecast shows no signs of letting up.

How do I know if a lesson has been cancelled?
Updates regarding the spring program (if cancelled due to rain), will be posted on our club’s website and Facebook page.
