    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.

    The Strathcona Cup committee would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all of you who bought tickets for the Strathcona Cup 50/50 + raffle. We were grateful and humbled with the overwhelming support for this event. We were told by the Scots that Tam Heather was the friendliest club the Scots had visited so far; they were very impressed with their visit to Tam Heather. Way to go Tam Fam!!

    We were also surprised and pleased to have Toronto curling legend, Joe Gurowka, come out for the games. Gurowka was first known for his participation at the 1966 Brier when he missed an opportunity in an extra playoff to upset Ron Northcott of Calgary. Gurowka skipped one more Ontario appearance at the Brier in 1976. Gurowka also won the Canadian Seniors Championships in 1989 and 1992, playing second for Jim Sharples. Gurowka was also a Canadian Masters champion in 2000. To have Gurowka attend this event at Tam was a true honour.

    Overall, the success of this event reflects all of the hard work by the committee, volunteers, staff and Tam club members, plus the commitment we have to the world of curling and community.

    In addition, we are very pleased to announce the winners of the 50/50 + Raffle:

    50/50 Cash Draw Winner: Paul Terry - Total of $1575.00
    Goldline FibreLight Curling Broom: Mary Worrall
    Goldline FibreLight Curling Broom: Melanie Goldhar
    Grapefully Yours coupon: Diane Fujita
    Magnum (1500 ml) bottle of wine: Frank Lauzon

    We are very pleased with the amount of interest in the 50th Anniversary Celebrations Dinner.  

    With less than 25 seats left available for the celebration dinner, time is running out so purchase your tickets as soon as possible if you plan on attending this final event of the season. 

    Your 50th Anniversary Committee   

    Anyone still intrested in purchasing Strathcona 50/50 tickets, they will be on sale on Monday, January 23rd at the Club from Brian Nash. Tickets will be sold between 3:00pm - 5:00pm. Good Luck to Everyone!

    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.
