Capilano Tennis Club is tucked away in a residential area in South Edmonton and our courts are surrounded by parkland with a great view of Edmonton’s downtown. We have 4 regulation Plexipave courts that are protected by windscreens and lit for night playing until 10 pm. Although our formal season, with Pro on site, begins in May and ends September 1, our courts are available for play in April and throughout October as long as the weather co-operates.
Our club house has washroom facilities, meeting rooms, a water cooler and a kitchen for social events. All members obtain a key fob which grants them access to the club house and a lock combination with provides access to the courts.
Ball Machine and Hitting Partners
When you join Capilano Tennis Club you can use our ball machine for individual practice or participate in our programs if you want to drop-in and have instant tennis partners. There is also a resource on the Members Only section of our website for members to contact playing partners of equal rating for singles or doubles play during open court time.
You can take private or group lessons with our Pro, at a discounted rate, and attend our club social activities. If you are a competitive player you can join our club box league or play in our interclub league or sign up for tournaments. Whether you are just getting started in tennis, are a junior player, or are an experienced veteran, you are bound to meet new people and make new friends at Capilano Tennis Club.
Our club has a live WebCam which provides members online access through our website to a view of our courts in real time. This feature enables non-local members to evaluate the weather and drive over when the sun is shining in Capilano. Additionally, anyone can see if the courts are busy or available for play.
