Coaching at SRC

Tennis is a growing sport on the Sunshine Coast in BC and the Suncoast Racquet Club is at the very heart of a growing tennis scene.

Adult & Youth Tennis:

As a Community Club it’s important we offer our SunCoast BC youth the opportunity to discover the game of tennis or improve their skills – they’re the future!  But we also offer coaching for adults too - whether you've just moved to the Coast and want to join a club for regular tennis, have just picked up a racquet after way too long or just want to brush up on your skills and techniques, then you've come to the right place.

Fall/Winter 2022:  For Adult Coaching see specific Adult Coaching page for more information.

Year-round our Club coach, Jacques Joyal, is at the centre of our coaching program and is on hand to help whether you want to be coached one-on-one or in small groups, he has sessions he can offer. 

He can be contacted at: 604-741-7858 or via email at: [email protected]

Youth Development 

We also have two support Funds to help families financially with tennis coaching for young tennis players who our coach has assessed and believes they have real potential to go far with the game.  These are - the SRC Youth Fund and the Paul Meyer Endowment Fund.

To find out more about our either of these Funds - either for donations to the fund or how to apply for funds - please email our Club Chair, Tamara F. Jacobsen, at [email protected] and she will guide you through the process. 

Summer 2022 : Youth Tennis Camps - Our Spring and Summer Camps in 2022 have been well attended and much enjoyed.  We will continue to run more camps in 2023.  This week-long Summer Camp took place at the Club’s indoor court facility 25-29 June.

We usually organize these camps by age and by ability ie beginners, improvers, intermediates.  

We try to reach as many school age children as possible each summer, ahead of their summer break as they really do benefit hugely from these sessions and their confidence grows enormously.
