THIS IS TENNIS EDMONTON! We're the tennis loving people in Edmonton. We like to be outside in the summer to get exercise and have fun… so if you love tennis or just want to try it out, you're in the right place! When we have good weather, we're out on court playing tennis, and you'll find plenty of fun. Whether you want to play sets, hit around, or just work on your game, you’ll meet 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!
