Adult Intermediate Clinic (level 3.0-4.5) Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-6:00pm 

Upgrade the 5 most important strokes (forehand, backhand, serve, volley and overhead). Learn simple, powerful strategies, and some specialty shots such as the half volley, return of serve, passing shot and approach shot.

In the event of rain, classes may be cancelled. Rain make-up classes will be scheduled at the end of the clinic session.

Ladders

The OTLBC ladders are an excellent way for members of all levels to meet other players of similar ability and enjoy some friendly competition. Players are grouped in boxes, each with 4-5 players of similar playing ability, and they have three weeks to play each of the others in their box. Then, depending on how those games go, players move up, down, or stay put for the next round. There are boxes for every level from beginner to expert, so everyone can find their level. The ladders are especially helpful to new members.

There OTLBC has two ladders: Men’s Singles and Women’s Singles. Click here for more information on signing-up, arranging matches, and ladder rules.

Round Robins 

Free organized playing opportunities for members

View the list of round robins for 2022

Round Robins operate on a weekly sign-up basis and are open to players of all levels. They provide an opportunity to play organized tennis all season long. During a round robin, players rotate every 20-30 minutes, so by the end of the court time, everyone has had a chance to play with and against several different members. The exact format depends on the organizer, but round robins are really a good way to meet other members or find a game if you don’t have a partner or know other players. 

Interclub Opportunities

National Capital Tennis Association and City Leagues
