Tennis BC values its partnerships with Parks and Recreation departments, community centres, and seasonal clubs province-wide. Providing structure to entry level tennis programs is a key component to a new player's enjoyment of the sport and retention. To help ensure quality and consistency of delivery, we provide EZ Play programs.
If you are a beginner and are interested in taking tennis lessons that are followed by some supervised play time, Tennis BC's EZ Play Clinics and Leagues at your local community centre are a great fit.
