Coaching Program - Winter 2024

 See schedules below for Youth and Adult Coaching Programs

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. Coaching is open to anyone interested in tennis.  We welcome non-members.

As a Community Club we believe it’s important we offer our Sunshine Coast 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.

All Coaching programs take place indoors at our community indoor tennis centre at Suncoast Racquet Club, 6000 Lighthouse Avenue, Sechelt, V0N 3A5 (next to Kinnikinnick School). 

We supply all tennis equipment. Participants just need to bring a pair of clean indoor tennis or running shoes to change into.

Year-round our Club Coach, Jacques Joyal, and his Assistants are at the centre of our coaching program – Jacques is on hand to help whether you want to be coached one-on-one or in small groups.  For individual coaching he can be contacted at: 604-741-7858.
