Welcome to the Bowmanville Tennis Club (BTC)
The BTC is a community tennis club run by club members on a non-profit voluntary basis. We have two outdoor courts and have one court ready for year round use …….. weather permitting! (The weather can be fickle during the late fall, winter seasons.) The tennis club relies on membership fees and fund raising for funding. In 2018, we received a Clarington Community Grant for $500.00 which is much appreciated.
Fees are used to pay an annual lease charge and property taxes, in each case payable to the Municipality of Clarington. We also pay for hydro, lights, liability insurance, equipment, repairs, maintenance and normal operating expenses for the various club activities. Any balance is reserved for court resurfacing every 5-7 years (last resurfaced in 2013). The 2019 fees are increased (e.g. by $20.00 for a single member) to give us the funds to resurface the courts by 2020.
The objectives of the Bowmanville Tennis Club are:
A. To develop and promote the game of tennis and tennis skills among all members of the Club and the community at large.
B. To ensure the Club continues to operate and grow as a not-for-profit, community based and volunteer driven tennis club.
C. To ensure the conditions of the courts are maintained at a high level at all times and reserved for tennis only.
D. To ensure an appropriate mix of fun but competitive tennis that is available to all Clarington residents at a reasonable annual membership fee and in a learning and instructional environment.
