OTLBC: Semi-Private Tennis Lessons - Session I

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!


In the Beginner level you will learn the five most important tennis strokes: forehand, backhand, serve, volley, and overhead. You will also learn the basic rules and scoring for tennis so you can play games right away.


In the Intermediate level you will upgrade the five primary strokes in the beginner session and will learn simple, yet powerful strategy. Throw in some development of specialty shots like the half volley, return of serve, passing shot, and approach shot and you will be ready to take on anyone!


Registration deadline is Tuesday, August 27th @ midnight!

LATE FEES will apply to all registrations received after the deadline.
