The Ontario Tennis Association has selected the Southampton Tennis Club (STC) to receive the Outstanding Club Achievement Award for 2020.

tennisawardThis award is not given lightly as many categories are evaluated in awarding this recognition out of 240 clubs that belong to OTA. STC's summer programming includes casual and competitive tennis, child and adult lessons and programming as well as home and regional tournaments. GC Huston PS is a local beneficiary of their tennis programming and Saugeen First Nations has received tennis equipment. Also STC was one of the first local organizations to financially support the Southampton Range Light Restoration project.

The Southampton Tennis Club has been in operation for over 65 years and, in a non-COVID year, attracts over 1300 members. Three locations in Southampton support 15 tennis courts. At our main location, over 200 children, aged 5 - 15 have 40 minute age/skill lessons on 5 courts from 8:20 to 1 PM weekdays.

STC is a not-for-profit organization run by 15 volunteer directors and hires as many 25 students every summer. As one of our members said, "I love our club!!" a sentiment shared by all who participate in this unique Southampton organization.

This award will be a proud reminder to all current and former Directors, Staff and Members to continue to promote our motto of Friendships, Fun, Fitness and Fair Play.
