South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club Welcome

Welcome to the South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club!

South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club was founded in 1887. It is one of the oldest lawn tennis clubs in the world and the oldest lawn tennis club in Canada. The club received its  BC Heritage Site designation in 1992, and celebrated its 100 years of operation in 1987.  It has a total of 9 tennis courts, 7 of which are well maintained grass courts plus 2 outdoor hard courts.  We take great pride in our beautiful facilities and heritage. This historic lawn tennis club is a wonderful legacy that is cherished by generations of tennis players.  Click here to learn more about the club. Please be aware there is no commercial filming on the property without consent from the Board.

Club Apparel

South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club has proudly partnered up with the local custom embroidery JUST SEW to offer branded club apparel to all patrons.  All items are made to order with either printed or custom logo embroidery.  All proceeds go towards our grass court improvement project.

Patrons can order items online at anytime, but a group order is placed monthly with Just Sew at the end of each month. Group orders will take approximately 3 weeks to arrive.  Email notification will be sent once the orders are ready for pick up. Because these are custom orders, all sales are final.
