Program Description:

In partnership with Canucks Autism Network (CAN), Tennis BC is thrilled to have Dr Stephanie Jull to speak to our members about autism-spectrum disorders and the types of challenges that individuals with autism may face in a sports environment.  It introduces coaches, recreation, and community sport leaders to a range of strategies for supporting individuals with autism in inclusive sport activities.


Program Description:

Girls in Action program provides an outlet for female students who need additional positive support and would benefit from enriching extra-curricular activities.

In partnership with the Surrey School District, Tennis BC organizes a multi-week tennis program that provides students with the opportunity to try tennis in an encouraging and fun environment. Through the program, the girls have the opportunity to build positive self-image, self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership skills, and community engagement.

The program encourages these students to get engaged in some positive activities, and to keep them active in the community outside of school hours. The goal of this program is to provide an enrichment opportunity for girls in grades four to six to acquire skill, knowledge, and understanding that is transferrable back into the classroom to support their development academically and to encourage them to become good community-based citizens in the process.

Program description:

Partnering with Robert Lee YMCA, Tennis BC offers introductory tennis lessons as part of the Canadian Fitness Connection program for newcomers to Canada! This is a free eight-week program for participants to meet new friends and explore Canadian life and culture!


“I would like to express support and appreciation for Tennis B.C. and the assistance they have given our programming.

Over 2 years they have been a huge supporter of Immigrant Services at the YMCA of Greater Vancouver, specifically in the Canadian Fitness Connection where they have provided instruction to newcomers for an Intro to Tennis session both at the Langara Family YMCA and the Robert Lee YMCA.
This session has given our participants an opportunity to practice the sport, some for the first time, and learn how they can get involved with the sport in the long term through community events.

In general, this session helps participants gain an understanding of how tennis can help them stay active and improve their mental health. Without the help of Tennis B.C. we would not be able to offer this portion of the course to our participants.”

– Adrienne Bale, Manager, Immigrant Services YMCA of Greater Vancouver

“It is always such a pleasure to have Matin do a tennis session with our new immigrants. Although the class is just 1.5 hours, they thoroughly appreciate his patience and knowledge and enjoy that time very much. For many, this is the first time they’ve held a racket.”

– Rebecca Naidoo, Facilitator, Employment and Immigrant Services, YMCA of Greater Vancouver
