Capital Kids Tennis
Free tennis lessons for kids age 6 to 15 in Ottawa
Capital Kids is a program that started with a grant from the Trillium Foundation in 2014 and is a collaborative effort between the Ontario Tennis Association (OTA), the National Capital Tennis Association (NCTA) and the City of Ottawa.
Over the past four years, more than 5,200 children have been introduced to tennis through cost-free lessons on community tennis courts. Lessons take place in various neighbourhoods in which social and economic challenges make tennis an inaccessible sport. Capital Kids runs in the summer May-September and low-cost leagues are promoted to past participants in for the winter.
