Did you know a tennis club of some nature has been active in Almonte, since 1898. The Almonte Tennis Club, as we know it today has been established at the current Gemmill Park location, since 1970.

We even have a logo!

Did you know while the Municipality owns the Courts in Gemmill Park, the ATC as an independent non-profit organization is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the courts including the delivery of its tennis programs.

The Club is managed by an Executive Committee of volunteers, whom have been nominated and elected by you the members and tasked to promote and encourage the game of tennis.

The club relies on its members to assist in the responsibility of maintaining secure clean courts that can be enjoyed by all through respecting the Club’s rules and guidelines.

If any members have any concerns or ideas for improving the Club! Please don’t hesitate to contact the executive committee at tennisalmonte@gmail.com

Mrs. Masterson, Ms. MacNilage, and Coach Morrison would like to thank the boys for their dedication and perseverance. They are all very proud of their accomplishment and wish them nothing but success in their future endeavors.

ADHS Tennis Team

It was an eventful year for the ADHS Tennis Team! After three years with no tennis due to COVID, the team had a range of success and a lot of fun practicing together after school.

The ATC wishes all the best to the players for the remainder of their school year, and hopes to see many of the players on the courts during their summer break!

Housekeeping and Security Issues – June 6, 2022

ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS

Over, the past several weeks, the gate locks to the courts have been found unlocked a number of times over increasing periods. It has started to become a recurring issue. We are reminding all members to please close and scramble the lock at the doors on your departure. A helpful slogan to remember locking the gates:

LOCK – TUMBLE – TUG (LTT)

Additionally garbage, recycling, and a ball bin have been added on the courts. All members are reminded to pick up after themselves. The ATC is a volunteer led organization, and it does not have a fulltime dedicated staff cleaning and maintaining the courts.

The Almonte Tennis Club Executive Board, thanks you all for your understanding, and support in keeping the courts a safe and welcoming environment for the community.
