Meet Our Pros
My name is Grace Ellery and I am thrilled to be back for another season at FFTC as the Club Pro. I am in grade 12 at Fenelon Falls Secondary School. I love living in the Kawartha’s and I am proud to call Fenelon Falls my home town. I am a sports enthusiast playing every sport that I can pack into my schedule (baseball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, hockey, rugby, basketball). I have played Inferno Soccer on a first-place division team, I also play Lindsay Lynx hockey winning provincial gold and bronze but I have realized that tennis is my ultimate love. I have been taking tennis lessons since I was 5 years old and I train all year long in the high-performance program in Newmarket, Ontario under the coaching leadership of Brian Draxl and Shane Hickson. I won gold at the COSSA tennis championship and was really please with my performance at my first OFSAA championship and hope to further my results this year.
I am a certified instructor with Tennis Canada. I am passionate about playing tennis but I am most passionate about teaching tennis to members of my community. I believe that learning good technique, positioning and footwork establishes a solid foundation to play the game and I want others to experience the amazing game of tennis.
This summer I will be running two adult clinics on Sunday mornings grouped into two skill levels. I also will be running summer camps for kids age 6-13 beginning July 3rd, 1-3 pm happening all summer long. Camps are based on the Tennis Canada Learn to Play Program and they are a great, inexpensive way to introduce kids to the game.
I also provide private, semi-private and group lessons. See you on the courts!
Semi-Private (2 players): $20/person
Group (3+ players): $15/person
Summer Guest Pro
(July 1st - July 28th)
Growing up in Toronto, I was a ranked junior tennis player at both the provincial and national levels. Throughout my university years, I was a tennis instructor for the Ontario Tennis Association and club professional at various tennis clubs in eastern Canada. Since then, I have continued to coach and play competitive tennis at the club level, in the Intercounty & Toronto Ladies Tennis Leagues and, when time permits, in the Canadian Senior Nationals. When I’m not in Fenelon, I am coaching tennis at Toronto Tennis City and the Mayfair Toronto Parkway & East racquet clubs.
I am thrilled to be returning to Fenelon this summer and look forward to working with all the passionate tennis players, both new and returning, at FFTC.
