What we're about

THIS IS TENNIS EDMONTON! We're the tennis loving people in Edmonton. Also, we like to be outside in the summer, get exercise and have fun; so if you love tennis or if you just want to try it out, you're in the right place! When we get some good weather, we're out on the courts playing tennis, and whether you want to play sets, just hit around and have fun, work on your game...you'll find plenty of fun, friendly people interested in exactly the same thing. In the winter we play indoors. So come join us and make new friends, get some fresh air and exercise, and have an awesome time!
