    Start and Stop of Play - Bell Reminder

    A warning bell will ring at 5 minutes to the hour. Players must vacate their court promptly when the 2nd bell goes off on the hour, regardless of score.  Players who enter the bubble early are asked to remain on the bleachers until their start time and be respectful of the players on court 1.  In case a court is empty before or after the booked time, a five-minute grace period is permissible.  To enter or exit after the final bell, please do so without impacting / disrupting play on other courts.

    Club Information

    Tam Heather, or the “Tam” as we call it, is an active friendly club located in the Morningside and 401 community of Scarborough. Tam Heather opened in 1973 as a curling club with eight sheets of ice, then two years later in 1975, the club expanded by adding five tennis courts, three of which were covered in the winter with a bubble. Thirty four years later, in 2009, a four court year-round covered structure was built.
