The Tennis Courts

Clay courts are the gold standard, and Har-Tru is a world leader in the creation of great surfaces for playing tennis. The OTLBC has 18 of these superb courts, more than any other comparable club in Canada. 14 courts were completely restored and new LED lighting was installed in 2019. Easy on the joints, clay also allows for sliding and helps to prevent injuries, at the same time promoting good footwork and balance, so that players can continue in the sport to an advanced age. Tennis balls bounce more slowly on clay, which also promotes long rallies. The clay surface retains moisture, and it breathes, which means that Har-Tru Courts are significantly cooler than asphalt. 

The Pool

“Your Cottage in the City” would not be a cottage if it did not have water. Secluded, surrounded with greenery and edged with paving stones and grass, the pool offers a peaceful oasis in the city. Constructed in 1960 and recently rehabilitated, the large outdoor pool at OTLBC is perfect for a dip after a vigorous game of tennis. For Pool Members – those who do not play tennis – it provides an alternative way to enjoy the club amenities. If you happen to be a non-swimmer or would like to improve your skills, lessons are available, and trained lifeguards are on duty to protect swimmers and to manage health and safety.

Important Notice 

The club is undergoing a historic restoration of it's century old clubhouse. This project will preserve the cultural and architectural value of the building, and make it safer, more functional and more attractive for it's members. The goal eventually is to have a winterized building, open all year and contributing year-round to the club’s financial sustainability.
We cannot achieve the restoration without the support of the members, to whom the clubhouse belongs and who will benefit from the improvements. To that end, the board of directors approved a special membership assessment. For 2022, all memberships will include the assessment fee and for following years the new member fee will be replaced by the assessment. 

The board's overriding concern has been to keep the assessment consistent and equitable across all current and future members, including pool members. The assessment fees are as follows:

  • Family Memberships - $350
  • Adult, Senior, and Intermediate Memberships - $250
  • Junior Memberships - $150
The 2022 regular season memberships fees listed below include the special assessment in the total.
