Outdoor tennis season is coming to an end.  Welcome back GNAG-St. James Rink for it's second season!

We had a great tennis season at the club this year and we are looking forward to welcoming back the St. James rink into it's second season.  In partnership with Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG), the rink will offer organized afterschool skating and hockey for kids, learn to skate, free skate and good ol fashion shinny.  Please visit www.gnag.ca for more details.  The rink will be open as soon as weather permits!

Welcome Court 5 to St. James in 2015!

In partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board and Corpus Christi (located across the street from the club), St. James will be installing a 5th court in July in 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.
