Box Ladder
A friendly (and kind of competitive!) mixed singles tennis box ladder program where adult and junior players are placed in three-player round robin groups. Participants schedule their own games each month and are re-grouped according to results. Over time, the box ladder naturally lines up players of similar skill level. Participants provide a can of tennis balls each. The winner keeps the unopened can and the loser keeps the opened can. Players must be committed to playing two matches per month. Program starts April 1 and runs until the end of September, weather permitting. Rules and ladder information will be provided by the ladder coordinator. Initial registration deadline is March 31, however new players will be accepted throughout the outdoor season and will be placed at the bottom of the ladder so that they can work their way up.

Cardio Tennis
A high-energy fitness activity that combines the best features of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full-body, calorie-burning aerobic workout. It is a very fun and social class for players of all ability levels and the best way to train for tennis. The one-hour class includes warm-up and cardio segments (drills and games), and uses music and optional heart rate monitors. It is up to the discretion of the cardio authorized instructor to admit a junior (under 18) on a case-by-case basis. Drop-in classes are held on Sunday mornings (9-10 AM or 10-11 AM, starting May 7 until end of September) and Thursday evenings (7-8 PM, starting July 6 until end of September). Passes of 10 classes (class 11 is free) can be purchased.

Interclub League
The Calgary Interclub League is a tennis competition among various clubs in Calgary and area, which runs from late May to August with play-offs in early September. OTC tryouts take place in early to mid-May each year and players are chosen by the league coordinator based on results from tryouts, previous results and sportsmanship. There are two teams: a level 3 (Tuesday evenings) and level 4 (Wednesday evenings) team. There are 12 matches, of which 6 are home games. Game and practice schedules will be provided by the league coordinators/captains.
