Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring to the lessons?
Each participant needs a tennis racquet and water. A hat and sunscreen may also be needed.
What should I wear to the lessons?
Each participant should be in tennis/running shoes with non marking soles. You should dress comfortably in sports attire.
What should my child bring to camp?
Each participant needs a tennis racquet, hat, sunscreen, water, snacks and umbrella. If you don’t have a junior tennis racquet, then you can purchase one with the First Time Junior camp special. In this case the instructor will bring the racquet on the first day of camp.
NOTE: Please do NOT send any peanut products for snacks.
What happens if a student misses a tennis lesson?
There is no make-up class offered or credit given if a student does not attend a class.
How are the Juniors grouped?
They will be grouped by age and ability.
How do I get a Tax Receipt?
Our junior lessons and camps qualify for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit. You will receive a confirmation and receipt at the time of registration.
What is your rain policy for tennis lessons?
Lessons cannot be held in the rain. Once the ground is completely covered with water, it is too slippery to play. If lessons are cancelled due to rain, make up classes will be added on to the end of the session on the same day and time. These can only be added on up to the last day before the start of a new session. We do not offer refunds if you cannot attend the make up classes.
If it has rained earlier in the day and has stopped prior to your lesson, and the courts have had a chance to dry off somewhat, then the instructor will attempt to run the class. There is no central place that can make this decision. It is ultimately the instructor’s call whether to run the class. If you are uncertain of conditions, then it is best to go to the location. If you are unsure, then the instructor is most likely unsure and will therefore be there to determine if the lesson can go ahead.
It is not possible for us to make a general decision to cancel classes as weather can change rapidly and may vary from location to location and hour to hour.
Please note: For the Half-Day Junior Summer Camps which run Monday to Friday, there are no make-up days available. Therefore for those weeks, the price is based on a 4 day week allowing for the possibility of 1 rainout day. If there are no rain days, all five days run as scheduled.
What happens if it rains on the half day camp at Springfield Tennis Club?
The juniors will participate in indoor activities in the clubhouse until the rain stops.
What is your refund policy?
A full refund will be given if notice is provided at least one week prior to the start of the program.
