Hello All Tennis Members, 
    Due to last night's snowstorm and significant snow fall in a short period of time, the tennis bubble is sagging on the west side on courts 1 & 4.  The snow is not sliding off the bubble material like it once did due to the bubble material aging factors.   
    The maintenance team did preventative measures yesterday before the storm hit.  The bubble pressure was increased and the heat was turned up in hopes the snow would melt on contact and/or slide off.  We will continue to monitor the snow on top and adjust the heat and pressure accordingly.    
    At this time, the bubble remains safe to play for all regular scheduled games.  Please be aware of the lights that are lower than usual on the west side of courts 1 & 4.  
    We will keep you updated on any further changes to the bubble structure or impact it may have on regular court bookings.

    Toronto Ladies Tennis League (TLTL) matches start first week of May and run for 10 weeks (I think there may be a week off Victoria Day or Canada Day week possibly), season usually ends mid-July.

    Matches are Monday nights at 7 pm and are the best of 3 sets.  We play 4 courts of ladies' doubles.

    We would have 5 home matches at Tam and 5 away matches (we would play each team 2 twice – once at home and once away).  So travel is required – but you could arrange carpooling.

    We’ve played in Division 3 for many years and asked for a deferral last year when the bubble went down and we couldn’t pull the team together.  I’ve been told we will return to be either Division 3 or 4 – TBD.

    Although a competitive league, there is a social component and TAM hosts the visiting team with snacks i.e. Cheese & crackers, juices, muffins etc.  Everyone playing a home game would need to contribute.

    Tam Heather graciously covers our league registration.

    Each player would have to be a summer member of TAM at a cost of $125 (no court fees) – or a league only membership is available at a cost of $60.

    Also, a small cost for balls for our 5 home games would be required.

    Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in participating in the TLTL league.

    Depending on the interest, tryouts may be required, and they would take place on Saturday, April 1st @ 6 pm – mark your calendars.

    This league is lots of fun and the comradery is great.

    Dear Fellow Tam Tennis Members,

    The Board of Directors recently released the membership rates for 2023/24.  We wish to give you a bit of background on how we arrived at the numbers.

    For some time, the tennis “year” has been out of sync with the fiscal year of the club, which runs May 1 to the following April 30.  Winter and annual memberships were accounted for in one fiscal year and summer memberships in another, which meant that summer tennis was an afterthought.  To fix this problem, in 2022/23 no annual memberships were offered, so that in 2023/24 the tennis year begins with summer tennis and annual memberships are once again offered.  In addition to solving some accounting headaches, we on the Board feel that the tennis community will be better able to plan its programs.  We also want to define Tam Tennis as a year-round activity.  Another decision, recommended by the finance committee, was to roll the capital levy surcharge into the membership fee structure so that, aside from OTA fees and HST, the number you see is the total that you will pay.  A third decision was to remove court fees for members playing in the summer.

    These changes amount to what looks like a big increase in fees, but in fact, there are only small increases to the bottom line, in keeping with inflation.

    It is a fact that the courts have been under-utilized in the summer months.  In an effort to change this, we have removed court fees for members for the summer session, May 1-Sept. 30.  For the one membership fee, whether it be annual or summer, members can have unlimited access to the courts – sort of like an “all you can eat buffet.” 

    We priced the annual membership fees very competitively in order to encourage as many of you as possible to consider joining Tam year-round.  We recognize that most of our members disperse to outdoor summer clubs, but for a small addition to the winter rates, you can have access to weather-proof tennis when you want it and with no court fees. You can continue games with your same playing partners from the winter, provided that your friends take advantage of this deal too. 

    By beginning the tennis year on May 1 and giving current members fair opportunity to either join for the year or reserve a spot by placing a deposit for the winter session, League Coordinators and Team Captains will have extra lead time for planning their winter activities.  At the same time, those on the waitlist or those looking to join Tam for the first time will become known to our community over the summer, making it possible for them to connect with Leagues and Teams.

    You will note that our summer fee schedule accommodates some special cases such as the player who only wants to play on a specific competitive team, or the player who only wants to participate in a specific clinic or camp.  For these people, the “Program Only” option exists in the form of a registration fee rather than full membership, but it does not allow them to play at other times.

    Our fee schedule offers discounted junior, student and senior memberships in most categories.

    Where not available, the rationale is that prime time hours for booking courts are scarce.  Adults, most of whom work, should not have to compete with discounted memberships for this resource.  Instead, we offer a generous discount on non-prime time court fees and provide many opportunities for seniors to play during the day.

    We want to assure you that we have tried to consider many points of view.  If you have questions, please direct them to one of the Board members.  Tennis members on the Board include Diane Lang, Tennis Liaison; David Muir, President; Helen Bigall, Treasurer; and Neil Finlayson, House.  Get in touch by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

    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.
