Long Park Tennis Club

At the southern end of Steve McLean Park, near the corner of Deer Park and Meadowlands, stands the Long Park Tennis Club (the club did not have its name changed when the park itself was renamed).

Lessons for adults and children are available on request and summer camps will be offered to youth aged 7-12 years old. Memberships and lessons can be arranged by contacting Cheryl at cclarke002@sympatico.ca or (613) 226-2369.

We are fortunate to have two fully qualified instructors working with the club this year. Arthur Cuenco has worked with Long Park for many years and has advanced instructing credentials. Matthew Lavryssen has joined us this summer and is working with a number of clubs to offer lessons and run summer camps.


The next set of five one-hour lessons at Long Park will start Wednesday, July 12 at 6:30 p.m. If numbers warrant, we may offer junior lessons at 6 p.m. and adult lessons at 7 p.m. Otherwise, we will have a combined group of adults and juniors starting at 6:30.

Cost: $55 for a package of five one-hour lessons

When: Starting Wednesday, July 12 at 6:30 p.m.

The aim is to provide a safe and good environment within the Fisher Heights area where families can enjoy recreational tennis.
