The Supreme Court Indoor Opens October 15

“Hey there… I’m new in town…”

There is a new club in Toronto operating out of a site you might know… Formerly The Fitness Institute and Goodlife Tennis, The Supreme Court Indoor will be operating out of the 4 court bubble in the Sheppard and Victoria Park area!

Proudly offering some of the most affordable winter tennis rate in town, hosting a great staff and offering tons of programming, The Supreme Court offers an enjoyable affordable indoor venue for true tennis players.

"Our mission is to provide affordable indoor tennis  in Toronto. We are a beach volley vibe in a tennis setting. We are music playing, fun loving, entertaining atmosphere that offers programming and pricing for real tennis players!”

Dates: The club will be offering winter memberships from October 15th, 2016 – March 31st, 2017. Just the right amount to get you through the winter months!

Cost: Adult memberships are going for $279 and junior memberships are going for $99. Our “quiet time” court fee is $12 per hour and our “busy time” court fee is $18 per hour.

Location: 2235 Sheppard Avenue East, Toronto.

We will be hosting an Open House on Saturday, October 15th from 11:00am – 1:00pm. This is a good chance to check out the site, have a hit, meet the staff, share a couple high fives and just get an overall feel of what we are about!

Don’t fall out of love with tennis just because its winter! Come party with us and let’s have a wicked awesome time this indoor season!

Marilyn Redvers Tennis Centre in Aurora

We are honoured to name our new facility in memory of one of Aurora’s outstanding citizens, Marilyn Redvers.  Marilyn’s generosity was evident in the financial contributions she made to her church, a multitude of local charities, local sporting teams and last but not least, Southlake Hospital.  She was honoured by the Town of Aurora as Citizen of the Year and also by the Chamber of Commerce as Business Person of the Year.  Marilyn was an avid tennis player and a local community club player.  She was certainly an Aurora icon and naming this new tennis facility is an honour she richly deserves.

The club will open its doors in the Fall of 2016 and will be located at 1390 Wellington St. East in Aurora (close to Highway 404).  As a year round facility, the Dome will stay up 12 months a year, including air conditioning in the summer.

There are 3 membership options:

Option 1: Full Year     Option 2: Fall/Winter Only     Option 3: Spring/Summer only. It’s less than $55 to upgrade from a Fall/Winter membership to a Full Year membership—that is, less than $55 in membership fees for an extra 5 months per year! 

We are also offering a promotional FIVE year membership with discounted fees and added benefits.  This membership option is offered on an individual basis or as a couple. Click on the links below for detailed info at Marilyn Redvers Tennis Centre:

OTA Instagram Beloved Canadian tennis star Bruno Agostinelli Jr. passed away tragically in 2016 at the age of 28. His younger brother Gianluca lovingly remembers his brother in this tribute story. Gianluca tells us about Bruno’s wonderful accomplishments as a junior, college and Davis Cup star and about how he inspired the next generation as an elite coach at Tennis Canada. But, more than that, he shares what it meant to be Bruno’s brother and how he was inspired by Bruno in tennis and in life… and still is. After stepping away from the sport, Gianluca was drawn back to it as a way of coming to terms with Bruno’s passing and to feel close to him once again. Read about Bruno’s incredible legacy: http://ontennis.ca/articles/2020/StringsAttached.html
