Tennis Instructional - Intermediate *NEW*

The Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC) and the OSSC have partnered to bring you exclusive access to tennis lessons from Ottawa's longest standing tennis club!


The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 4 students per tennis pro to ensure you get the most enjoyment and skill development.


In the Intermediate level you will upgrade the five most important strokes: forehand, backhand, serve, volley, and overhead. You will learn simple, yet powerful strategy, and some of the other specialty shots like the half volley, return of serve, passing shot, and approach shot, which you need for a more complete game of tennis. Improve and learn new things to make the game more fun. Break through the “intermediate plateau”.
