St. James is a small community-based tennis club located in the heart of The Glebe, Ottawa. Our members are young, old and in-between, and enjoy combining tennis with a relaxed and sociable club atmosphere. Our young, enthusiastic and experienced coaches run the largest junior program in the region, seeing an average of over 100 juniors participating in lessons at St. James each day. Our program was filled within the first few hours of opening day this season!
St. James has 4 hard courts, a clubhouse and lights for nighttime play. We offer a range of activites including individual and group lessons, competitive leagues, club tournaments, and "round robins" where members can just turn up and play a game.
The social aspect of tennis is a big part of St. James, and there are a number of special events throughout the season. We also have a strong emphasis on tennis for families and children, including free activities for junior members and a range of lessons and tennis camps. Our professional coaches are committed and energetic, and we have a small team of staff who look after the day-to-day running of the club. Club management is undertaken by our volunteer executive committee.
In 2013 the official St. James season runs from April 27 until September 15 although we will continue playing for as long as the weather is good. We hope you will join us!
Joining St. James is easy. Just download the membership form on this site and mail it to us with your cheque. You can also drop in to the club at any time and join up on the spot!
