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.

Assessment Fee

In order to help achieve the Clubhouse Restoration Project, the Board of Directors approved a Special Assessment Fee for all 2022 memberships. From 2023 onward, the Special Assessment will be charged to all new members, replacing the former New Member Fee. This is to ensure all current and future members of the club contribute equitably.

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

  • Family Memberships - $350
  • Adult, Senior and Intermediate Memberships - $250
  • Junior Memberships - $150
