Craig Henry Tennis Club

About the Club

We are located in the Craig Henry Park. The club has 8 hard courts, open from May to September 30. The lights are turned on at dusk, and will switch off automatically at 11 p.m. Our court monitors/attendants are responsible for turning the court lights on during their regularly scheduled shift when courts are booked after 8 pm, and the lights will turn off automatically at 11 pm. Please keep in mind that we do not have the manpower to service individual requests to turn lights on when the attendant has either not shown up or has gone home due to rain. In the month of October, we do not employ attendants so the lights will not be turned on unless a director of the Club is booked to play and the online booking schedule reflects a minimum of 3 court bookings at 8 p.m.

The Craig Henry Tennis Club is a member of the Ontario Tennis Association and the National Capital Tennis Association.

Staff

The staff members are responsible for the day-to-day work at the club: court bookings, court monitoring, running social activities, interacting with club members, managing the use of club assets, and so on. The attendants this season are Isaac Jensen Large and Christian Morrison-Healey.

Our monitors are young people who are working hard to improve your tennis experience at the club. We appreciate their contribution to the club. This is probably their most important job so far. Let's treat them with respect. We request members further respect our attendants and facilities by picking up after themselves.

We are always looking for good candidates for part-time monitor positions with the club. If you want to join us, please send your resume or bio profile to info@craighenrytennis.com.


 

Volunteers

We appreciate the help of the volunteers who made significant contributions to the club this season. A big Thank You to the morning group and to Rob Dickie!
