The courts at Long Park Tennis Club have been busy of late, and it’s all thanks to the arrival of Sean Sweeney and Score Tennis Academy. When it came time to find a new home for his tennis academy, Sean and his team of coaches chose Long Park Tennis Club as their new home to train their high performance athletes, and run summer programs and camps.
The academy partners with the City of Ottawa to use its courts for training purposes in exchange for managing and caring for the courts throughout the season. When asked why he chose this location, Sean said he couldn’t believe how well kept the courts were; like finding a hidden gem in the city.
No doubt, membership is down and Long Park Tennis Club is in a transition phase. But with the neighbourhood having such a diverse demographic, the club recently electing a new group of executives, and quality tennis programs being offered at Long Park, the future looks bright for tennis in the Fisher Heights community.
Sean offers private, semi-private, group lessons and clinics for all ages. If you are interested in brushing up on your skills or introducing your children to the game, get in touch with Sean at email@example.com.
Score Tennis Academy runs its programs Monday to Friday from 10:30-12:30 and 2-4:30, but there will always be room for members who wish to play during those times. One hour private lessons cost $35, but contact Sean for semi-private and group rates.
