    Women's Tennis Ladder


    500 Ukrainian refugees have been housed in Scarborough and Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA) has been tasked with assisting these folks in acquiring winter clothing. These are adults of multiple ages who will be in need of winter clothing including jackets/ coats and footwear in the coming months. Many of these displaced people came with very few personal belongings.

    If you have gently used or new winter clothing including jackets/coats and boots, please consider making a donation. We will collect these items in bins downstairs in the respective change rooms. The bins will be available Thursday morning (Oct 20) until November 4th.

    If you require additional information please contact Jennifer Scott at 416-918-0237

    Hello Tam Heather Members,

    Neil and I would like to thank you for your orders of meat pies and lasagnas. We are not taking any more orders since the season is starting. It requires time and space which we had before the season started. The good news is we will be making tourtieres in December. Keep an eye out for our newsletter in the future.

    Thanks,
    Damiano and Neil

We will be setting up the board for 6 end games and 8 end games. We have 104 curlers signed up so far. Carson has sheets made up to accommodate 5 man teams should we have more than 64 curlers.

    I have spoken to Damiano about pizza nights. We are planning for 3 spaced out throughout the season. We have 12-13 confirmed available dates with a few more possible. Here are our confirmed dates:

    • October 15 & 29
    • November 5 & 19
    • December 10 & 17
    • January 14
    • February 18 & 25

    If you have other Tam Heather Club friends who have not joined this league but would like to try it out we would be delighted to have them participate. If they are already a full club member a one time $10 social fee will be charged to their account. If they are not a full club member we will make up a name tag, and have a list for the office each week who will charge them $15 for ice time each time they come. Again a one time charge of $10 will also be added by the office to their account to cover our social fee.

    Tam Heather would like to welcome all NEW Tennis members, as well as all of the returning members for the 2022/23 Winter season.

We will continue to follow the Public Health guidelines and Provincial guidance as we move forward. Please do what makes YOU comfortable! Some members may choose to continue masking and some members will not, both are acceptable, let’s be kind and respectful to each other in remembering this.

    New This Season!  

    We are happy to announce that Tam has initiated a new volunteer run Tennis Committee this year.  This committee has seven members, who have already met once and will continue to meet on a monthly basis to discuss the overall needs within the Tam Tennis section. 

    Why?  The principles of the committee are:

    • to shape and support the tennis program at Tam Heather
    • to encourage and support members of all ages to play tennis
    • to ensure that the tennis section is run using existing resources
    • to work closely with the club’s General Manager on maintenance issues, marketing, fundraising, social events, feedback, and tennis program development

    Who?  Tam Heather's New Tennis Committee Members:

    Diane Lang - Tennis Liaison
    Lionel Eli - Tennis Director
    Lorne Devine
    Deb Kolenousky
    Semone Henville
    April Luz
    Annette Barjer

    Please direct any questions or concerns directly to the Tennis Committee via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    A Few Reminders as Tennis returns for Winter Play:

    1) The bell that rings at the 55 minute mark tells players to finish their play promptly, pick up balls and exit before the hour mark.  Oncoming players should not enter the courts until the ending players have finished and left.  The bell that rings at the hour mark signals the start play for the next group.

    2) Divider nets closed is the default position.  Only if everyone involved agrees should the divider nets be opened between two courts.

    3) Non-members are not allowed to play in any court booking unless they are signed in as guests.  A daytime tennis member who plays during evenings and weekends is required to pay the guest fee at those times.

    4) Any outerwear should be hung on the coat racks located next to the bleachers. Outside shoes and boots need to be removed in the dome entryway prior to stepping out on the courts as we are trying to keep any salt and dirt off the play areas.

    5) Please take a moment to make sure you know how to log in to both the members area of the website and to GameTime for court booking.  If you are having trouble, please send a message to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    6) The kitchen will open on Tuesday, October 11th and the operating hours are 8:30am-7:30pm Monday to Friday.  Tennis members are cordially invited to come to the clubhouse to use the locker rooms, lounge, and bar for beverages, snacks and meals.

    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.
