Court 5 Project update

In partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board and Corpus Christi (located across the street from the club), St. James is planning to install a 5th court in August, 2015.  After inspecting the schoolyard asphalt a little more closely, the OCSB has decided to completely repave the playground in July 2015.  This is good news because it will lay a solid foundation for our new court which will be complete with net posts, regulation court lines and Kids Tennis court lines (red half court and orange 3/4 court).  St. James will be funding the project and will have priority access to the space after school hours, on weekends, and in the summer time.  We'd like to thank Michael Schreider, Principal of Corpus Christi, for helping to facilitate this project.

Mary Thompson Award

This award was created to honour Mary Thompson, a long-time St. James member and mathematics teacher at Glebe Collegiate. In 2003 we lost Mary to cancer, but her enthusiasm for tennis and her vitality will always be remembered. Please contribute to our annual award which goes to the most improved Glebe math student.
