QUAKER PARK TENNIS CLUB - 425 Driscoll Terrace, Peterborough - Tel 743-7099
A Message from your Executive Team
Once again, we have had an incredible season of tennis. Unfortunately, the weather is starting to turn and we are seeing more days where play is just not possible due to rain or court conditions. The courts are still in good shape but they do not recover as quickly from a rain.
The official closing date of the club is set for Saturday October 23rd, 2021. Members are encouraged to participate in the work party to close the club. Work will start at 10 am. Please bring your work gloves and cheery faces.
PLEASE take note of BULLETIN #9 which provides more detail regarding the closing of the club and the availability of courts after the closing date.

Nestled on the east bank of the Otonabee River, just north of Hunter Street, the Quaker Park Tennis Club is truly a gem in the rough. With the scenic river bank west of the club and the beautifully maintained grounds of the Kawartha Credit Union, the club provides a relaxing atmosphere for fellowship and exercise.
Friendly professional staff and welcoming members invite you to come down and try your hand at this game. The recent successes of our Canadian athletes, Milos Raonic, Denis Shapovalov, Eugenie Bouchard and Bianca Andreescu has catapulted this sport to the forefront.
Tennis is an incredibly easy sport to take up at any age and requires little equipment. Quaker members range from age 3 to 83.
The Club offers 5 Har-Tru courts (clay courts). The playing surface cushions the body reducing many common tennis injuries and allows for longer play with less fatigue.
