Tennis BC is a not-for-profit society that is funded by membership, sponsorship, government grants and programs.
Whether you’re an individual member or a club member, there are many benefits involved in joining Tennis BC!
Club and/or Individual Members are eligible to receive:
Club & Director’s Insurance
Tennis BC, in partnership with Sport BC insurance providers, offers significantly reduced premiums available for member clubs, facilities, and societies. Coverage and premiums are effective as of April 6, one year to date.
Tennis BC, in partnership with Rogers and Tennis Canada, offers a membership registration and rankings system for juniors, adults, and seniors participating in provincial and national tournaments.
Tournament Planner System
Clubs receive a license from Tennis Canada to schedule tournaments and run sanctioned events. By hosting sanctioned tournaments, member clubs have the opportunity to benefit from additional revenue, raise the club’s profile in their local community which in turn attracts new members and provides an added service to current members.
Website & Social Media Exposure
All member clubs can receive the desired exposure on our website or any of our social media platforms with the listing of club information, programs offered, upcoming sanctioned tournaments and ways to get involved at your respective club.
Tennis BC coordinates and publishes an annual calendar of sanctioned and non-sanctioned tennis tournaments for players of all ages and abilities, including the Stanley Park Open, Summer Series, Senior Series, Junior and Senior Provincial Championships, Orange-Green Ball (U9, U10 kids’ tennis) Circuit, Rogers Rookie Tour (novice U8-U16 tennis), and Miele Leagues and Team Tennis.
Tennis BC supports more than 3,000 league players throughout BC, hosts a Provincial Men’s and Ladies Team Championship, and year-end Miele Celebration Event.
Tennis BC delivers Tennis Canada’s Coaching Certification, a comprehensive program that integrates coaching theory with specific technical information. The bi-annual Coaching Conference and regular certification clinics keep our coaches and instructors knowledgeable and up-to-date.
Tennis BC offers Tennis Canada’s officiating courses for those who wish to become certified Referees, Roving Umpires, Chair Umpires, and Line Umpires.
Monthly Tennis BC Insider sent to Junior and Adult Members includes upcoming events from Tennis Canada, Tennis BC, and member clubs, special offers from friends of Tennis BC, local stories, BC player highlights and results, coaching tips, and national/international updates.
