About the club

We are a family-oriented tennis club with nearly 200 members in the west end of Ottawa. Our 3 floodlit, plexipave-surfaced courts were resurfaced in 2014. In 2017 we added our first Pickleball court. We have a small clubhouse with washroom facilities and plentiful parking. Our mission is to provide high quality, user-friendly facilities and services that will allow you to enjoy the lifetime sports of tennis and pickleball in your own community. Please join us!

Registration is ongoing. Once you are registered, simply tag up and play! Check the Programs page for times when court availability may be limited.

Details of our 2020 youth lessons are still being determined. Details will be posted as soon as they are known.

 


 

President's message

2020-05-21

Dear Members,

Welcome to the tennis season of 2020! The nets are up, the courts are cleared of leaves but precautions against COVID-19 are all still applicable. As you well know, changes all around us have been made to our lifestyle and the Crystal Beach Tennis Club is no exception.

We plan to have the tennis and pickleball courts fully open by Saturday, May 23. Once a person or family purchases a membership, the lock code will be provided to you for accessing the courts. Fees remain unchanged from last year and the Early Bird rate is in effect up to Saturday, June 6, 2020. The Club’s opening must follow the directives established by the City of Ottawa and the Tennis Canada authorities, including social distancing and hygiene practices. Notice of all specific directives will be placed close to the main entrance gate to the tennis courts. Please familiarize yourself with them.

 

PRIMARY CONDITIONS:

Members are responsible to themselves and to others for respecting the City of Ottawa directives for tennis play.

Consider that a personal HAND SANITIZER is a permanent part of a player’s tennis gear.

On the courts, tennis or pickleball singles matches only are PREFERABLE. However, doubles play is allowed as long as players observe the 2-metres (6 feet) social distancing rule that is still applicable if players are not within the same family/household.

Tennis balls deserve CAUTION. Each server should have their own can of tennis balls, uniquely marked. Each serves their own tennis balls and collects them before the next person serves.

The Clubhouse will be closed, including access to the washroom, and this is by order of the City of Ottawa.

 

MEMBERSHIP:

Applications for membership, membership fees and methods of payment are outlined on the website (www.crystalbeachtennis.org). We would prefer electronic transfer to our bank account; otherwise, we will accept cheques. We want to avoid the handling of cash, if at all possible.

We must all become accustomed to the new procedures and respect that they are in place for the safety of all members. The main benefit, however, is that tennis can now be played again at the Club and our Executive Committee extends to you and your families a very big welcome and every best wish for the Crystal Beach tennis season.
