Camps and Court Usage!
A reminder to all members that even though day camps are now in full swing, courts 3 and 4 are always available for members play during camps hours. Hard as we try, like many things, camps tend to expand to fill the space available! Should this be the case please see any of the camp staff to ensure the courts are available for your use. If you have any concerns or questions please contact Tom MacDonald (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Francisco Alvarez (email@example.com). Tom or Fran can usually be found on site during camp hours. Happy Tennis!

St. James 5th Court
In partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) and Corpus Christi (located across the street from the club), St. James has a brand new tennis court which is a smooth black asphalt top with white lines. It is open to St. James members basically at all times when school is not in session, which is after school, on weekends, and in the summer time. We'd like to thank Michael Schreider (former Principal) and Jennifer Grant, current Principal of Corpus Christi, as well as the OCSB 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.
