Organized Play Programs

Let’s play the clay! Let us take care of you with events that will draw members and guests together and provide opportunities to meet new players or just pick up a game!

Organized play programs will be set up and overseen by the Bear Mountain Pro Staff to enhance your member experience. With drop-in mixers, Doubles shootouts and tournaments, there will be events for all ages and levels of play!
Please refer to the Tennis Canada Play Tennis Self Rating Guide to establish your level.
This will help to ensure all participants are competitive with each other.

All our programs will be coordinated by a member of the BMTC Pro Team, courts will be reserved by our staff and will include balls and administrative fees.
Some events will be free and some will have a fee to cover the cost of food and prizes.

Only Bear Mountain Tennis members and Hotel guests can participate in our organized play programs. Some events will be designated as a “Bring a Guest” event and will allow members to bring in guests to participate.

The Self Rating Guide is not a rating of the level “you hope to play at” or “your best day ever” or strictly based on how well you hit the ball. This is a “full package” rating guide of your level of “PLAY”. This rating guide involves your tactical, technical, physical, mental and emotional skills, during competitive match play.

How?

Use the “Play Tennis” Self-Rating Guide which identifies and describes different levels of tennis ability.

Purpose:

Find your own general level of tennis ability.
Find players of a similar level so that you can have competitive games.
Play an individual at a higher level using handicap scoring to make the game more competitive.
Participate in group lessons or league play with people of similar ability.

Guidelines to rate yourself:

Study the “Play Tennis” self-rating chart
Start reading from the top of the chart, beginning with Level 1.0.
Find the level that best describes your general level of play.
Ask your Instructor or Coach to validate your self-rating, if you think that will help.
Remember that as you play more, and improve, your rating may improve.
Update your rating periodically.
Results in social and competitive matches will validate whether your chosen level is reasonably accurate.
