Club Programs 2022
The club is excited to announce a new program and court schedule for the 2022 playing season. The Program and Court Schedule was developed by the 2022 Program and Court Scheduling Committee that took many factors into consideration. The goal was to maximize the usage of the courts by offering a variety of programs that encourage player development and enjoyment by the members. The data captured from the Member Survey was analyzed and was a large factor in developing the club’s programs and court schedule. In the final phase of developing the schedule the usage of the courts by the Fenelon Falls High School was incorporated as we continue our partnership with the Trillium Lakelands District School Board.
The FFTC offers a variety of programs to accommodate various levels of play for all members as noted below. Please feel free to contact any of the Program Convenors to sign up for a program(s) that interests you or if you have any questions.
There are a variety of drop-in days and times being offered with each session catering to various levels of play. These sessions are a great way to experience different partners, and more importantly, to get to know other members of the club. While these are drop-in sessions, it’s encouraged, but not mandatory, that you contact the appropriate convenor to let them know you'll be attending to ensure there will be enough players to fill each court. Also, it’s recommended to please check your player rating using the self-rating rating guide to see which session will meet your level of play and enjoyment:

Ladies 3.5+ Round Robin
The Monday Ladies Round Robin is a relaxed and fun tennis environment for players with a minimum rating of, or near, 3.5. The round robin format cycles players with different partners, promoting an equal level of play on each court. It’s a great way to experience different partners, and more importantly, to get to know other ladies from the club. An email is sent out monthly, requesting player availability for the coming month. A schedule is established showing when each player will play, and includes a spare list. Scheduled players are responsible for organizing their replacement if they need to cancel from the supplied spare list. If you’re unsure of your player rating, please consult the self-rating guide.
Ladies 3.5+ Round Robin Convenor:
Alexis Loney ~ firstname.lastname@example.org • 647-409-2930
This season there will be three separate days of league play for mixed doubles tennis in a progressive format. Scores will be recorded and used to ensure competitive matches by moving players based on performance to courts of similarly skilled players. Please contact the appropriate Convenor indicating which day(s) you are interested in playing. If you cannot commit to play on a regular basis, please indicate if you want to be on a waiting list to sub in when needed. An email invitation will be sent out each week by the Convenor for players to respond to, indicating their availability for the coming week of play. You will receive an email confirmation from the Convenor to let you know if you are scheduled to play. If you do not receive a confirmation email it’s because that session is oversubscribed, and your response was not received in a timely manner.

Friday League: Barb Smith ~ firstname.lastname@example.org • 705-928-4066
