As you know, the Executive of the Barrhaven Tennis Club (BTC) is comprised entirely of unpaid adult volunteers. 

We are one of the largest public tennis facilities in Ottawa, with eight lighted plexipave courts for day and night enjoyment. Membership has exceeded 450 members in recent years. The club offers programs to suit everyone’s tennis needs, level and age, including junior programs, social tennis nights, house leagues, competitive leagues, tournaments and special social events. In addition, the club hosts various children’s camps throughout the summer. The club can only operate effectively with a vibrant and engaged executive.   

We are currently looking for volunteers to fill two important positions:   

Vice President (new position)  

Manager – Projects, Facilities and Maintenance.  

If you enjoy working with other people and you are a good communicator, you will find these positions very rewarding.   

By joining the Executive, you can help to make the Barrhaven Tennis Club a better tennis organization. We guarantee you will find it a fulfilling experience.  

You will find additional information on the two positions below.

If you are interested in submitting your name for one or both of these positions, please send us an email with some brief information about yourself at barrhaventennisclub@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Your Barrhaven Tennis Club Executive
