We have an executive team experienced with the clay playing surface and its challenges. The team meets once a month throughout the year to continually address member needs.
Our head coach manages a great coaching staff with a mission to improve your tennis game.
We have been around for almost a century, thanks to support from the City of Cambridge and our sponsors.
Cambridge Tennis Club was founded in 1928 and has been serving Cambridge as a not-for-profit club ever since. With four lit clay courts and a comfortable clubhouse, the club has a long and storied past.
Nestled in the picturesque Soper Park beside a winding brook amid a stand of mature maple trees, the atmosphere at the club can be spell-binding—on bright days, electrifying. Many tennis players have grown up with the Cambridge Tennis Club and never forget their roots. You may well find it the same.
Our courts are reconditioned every year and you will find a superior playing surface. Whether you play casually or competitively, you can play when you feel like it, or play more often. Join in on free tennis instruction or sign up for team tennis. Or take lessons from the club pro. Whatever your playing preferences, you will have a memorable tennis experience.
In the following sections, you will meet our club executive and our coaching staff. If you get a chance, check out the awards gallery in the clubhouse to look into our past.
A lifelong resident of Cambridge, Mary Ann Gaskin began playing tennis at age 10. At age 14, she started training at the Galt Tennis Club (now Cambridge Tennis Club). Mary Ann achieved early success as a junior at both the provincial and national levels.
Attending the University of Waterloo, Mary Ann continued to excel in both tennis and basketball. In 1969, she won the Ontario University tennis championship, was MVP of the Ontario-Quebec championship basketball team, and was awarded the prestigious Dean of Women Award for athletic and academic excellence.
In honour of her athletic accomplishments, Mary Ann was among the first inductees into the University of Waterloo Sports Hall of Fame.
After graduating, Mary Ann entered the work force but continued to play tennis, competing in senior level tournaments. She has won numerous provincial singles and doubles (including mixed) titles. At the national level, Mary Ann has won over 30 outdoor championships and over 25 indoor titles. She has achieved a top 10 world doubles ranking and a top 20 world singles ranking.
As a result of her success at the national level, Mary Ann has represented Canada in the World Team Championships. She has been on over 20 national teams, captaining many of them, while competing around the world.
Mary Ann was treasurer of the Regional Interurban Tennis League for over 20 years, and currently volunteers as treasurer for the Cambridge Tennis Club.
