Tennis Saskatchewan can help your tennis club or community plan and administer a variety of tennis programs for children and adults. These programs range from event-based clinics, socials, and camps, to regular instructional programs. Tennis Saskatchewan can handle the administrative side of the program or we can supply coaches to lead and/or instruct programs administered by you (pending location and coach availability). What follows is a list of programs that you can book for your club/community. To check availability and pricing for any of the listed programs, please contact Tennis Saskatchewan.

Learn to Play Tennis for Kids
Learn to Play Tennis is a multi-week instructional tennis program or week-long camp for kids that uses Tennis Canada progressive tennis equipment and teaches the FUNdamentals of tennis. Children ages 4-18 can participate in Learn to Play programs, divided into various age categories and skill levels. Tennis Saskatchewan can supply coaches for Learn to Play programs, deliver programs internally, or train community leaders to deliver programs through workshops and/or the Tennis Instructor Course.

Learn to Play Tennis for Adults
Like Learn to Play Tennis programs for kids, Tennis Saskatchewan can also deliver or supply coaches for a Learn to Play Tennis program for adults. Adult programs can be geared towards any level of play, from brand new players to experienced tennis veterans.
Try Tennis Events
Organizing a Try Tennis Event for your community or club is an excellent way to reach potential tennis players. Events can be catered to kids, adults, or both. Event content can be instructional, social, or both and can be set at the level appropriate for your current and potential player base. Tennis Saskatchewan usually books these as 1-or-2-day events over a weekend during the outdoor season.
Tennis For Schools
Tennis for Schools is a national program that supports the development of fundamental movement skills related to the sport of tennis, while increasing student knowledge and appreciation for the sport.
Developed through a cooperative partnership between Tennis Canada and Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada), Tennis for Schools is designed for both generalist and specialist physical education teachers in Canadian elementary, middle, and junior high schools. It provides these teachers with the knowledge and tools so that they can introduce their students to the exciting potential that tennis offers in promoting lifelong physical activity and participation in sport. For more information about the national Tennis For Schools program and the Tennis For Schools Curriculum
Tennis For Schools programs can be booked as one-off Try Tennis events or longer Learn to Play Tennis programs. All participating schools will receive a copy of the Tennis For Schools Phys-Ed Curriculum and get access to equipment ordering through Tennis Saskatchewan.
Rogers Community Team Tennis
Rogers Community Team Tennis is a tennis program that provides participants with the opportunity to combine practice and play, with a focus on skill development through match play. Games are played using the Kid’s Tennis format, which includes appropriate equipment (based on age and skill level) with corresponding court sizes. Players are placed on teams in a manner that ensures teams are of similar strength and the format ensures that players play matches against others of similar ability. Scores are kept and the results are counted towards a team’s overall score to ensure that every participant’s efforts are rewarded.
Tennis Saskatchewan can help your club/community start a Rogers Community Team Tennis program or league and educate your coaches, volunteers, and/or community leaders on how to organize and run the program. For more general information about Rogers Community Team Tennis visit the Tennis Canada website.
Rogers Rookie Tour
The Rogers Rookie Tour is a national program designed to bridge the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial competitive junior circuit. Launched in 2009, Rogers Rookie Tours have reached thousands of juniors each year at tennis clubs and community venues throughout the country. Last year over 5,000 boys and girls across the country competed in over 300 events. The Rogers Rookie Tour encourages players to continue through the tennis pathway to become regular competitors and/or lifelong tennis enthusiasts.

Community/Club Volunteer Workshops
Do you have an active tennis club in your community? Or are you interested in starting one? Tennis Saskatchewan can provide training to club coaches and community/club volunteers on program planning/administration, introductory coaching, and club development. This training can be a useful stepping stone on the way to participating in the Tennis Instructor Course. Tennis Saskatchewan will cater these programs to meet the needs of your club/community and can be paired with a promotional tennis event for new and/or existing tennis players (junior and/or adult). In Canada, having an active tennis club has proven to be the best way to grow the sport.
