Welland Tennis Club honours the memory of Dutchy Doerr
Welland Outdoor Tennis Club
Hooker street Community Center
The Welland Tennis Club has provided a unique opportunity for recreational and competitive tennis enthusiasts for over 100 years. The Club is located at 45 Hooker Sreet in the downtown core of the City of Welland. It is ideally situated overlooking the banks of the Welland Recreational Waterway. The facility is truly unique to the Niagara Region, as it has four red clay courts in addition to four hard courts that are used throughout the playing season from April to October.
The membership base of over three hundred is drawn from the City of Welland and several surrounding municipalities within the Niagara Region. The exceptional standard of leagues, tournaments and social events make it a truly enjoyable experience for all members.
Beginning in approximately mid-October there will be some significant work started on our clay courts. Through the hard work of our board, specifically Susan Stasiak and Tady Saczkowski, a Trillium Grant in the amount of just over $92,000 has been secured. Your board, in conjunction with the City of Welland, Court Contractors, and the Trillium Foundation will oversee the re-construction of our clay courts which will ultimately improve drainage and reduce lost playing time during times of inclement weather. Keep an eye out for work crews on site.
