Membership

Since the 1880s, The Toronto Lawn Tennis Club has been at the forefront of the sport in Canada, a club where like-minded enthusiasts and tennis aficionados gather in the heart of the city to participate in a timeless sport.

While tennis is at the centre of The Lawn, the club is expansive and offers programs and opportunities for all ages. With world-class indoor and outdoor tennis, singles and doubles squash courts, fitness and wellness, and swimming during the summer, as well as outstanding dining options, The Toronto Lawn Tennis Club is a year-round whirl of activity. Additionally, with a range of options for children and teens, the club is a hub for the modern family, allowing everyone to stay active and enjoy a variety of athletic opportunities.

With a secluded location just off Yonge Street that showcases all of Toronto’s vibrancy, members are offered the best of Old-World charm, where a friendly atmosphere is found within the club’s ivy-covered walls.

Whether you’re a world-class player (who can often be found working on their games at The Lawn), a competitive amateur, or someone who just enjoys a spirited rally with friends before or after work, The Toronto Lawn Tennis Club captures the best the sport has to offer.

Toronto Lawn Tennis—A vital past and a vibrant future.
