Tennis Club commits to ParticipACTION


Kemptville Community Tennis Club planning special events to help with North Grenville’s bid to defend its title as Canada’s most active community. The municipality won the ParticipACTION challenge last year thanks to the efforts of many in the community. The tennis club played its part by encouraging members to log their minutes and running free clinics. As well, club members kept the courts busy for 12 straight hours during a “marathon match” event. ParticipACTION cited that event as one of the unique aspects of North Grenville’s winning bid.

The club is going to repeat the event this year on June 4th at the courts in Riverside Park. Club members will sign up for slots to make sure the courts are busy for 12 or more hours. All of the minutes from participants will then be entered into the ParticipACTION website on the tennis club’s behalf.

To help rack up more minutes, the club’s instructors will be offering up some free clinics to interested players on June 4. Clinics will start at 11:30 a.m. and run for about an hour. They are open for players of all skills and abilities. Anyone interested in the clinics should register by sending an email to Registering in advance will help the instructors plan for the clinics. The club has loaner racquets for anybody that wants to try tennis, but does not have a racquet.

Later in the summer, the club will host its annual children’s tennis camps. The camps run for an hour a day during the weeks of July 25 and August 15. These morning camps are open to children of all ages and abilities. The club will also be running an Adults Camp in the evenings during the week of July 25. Anyone interested in any of these camps can send an email to
