The board is pleased to introduce our new pro Tom Pociecha who will be starting at the ATC on May 1, 2021. Tom’s enclosed bio speaks to his qualifications and experience and he comes highly recommended from within the tennis community. He is a man of ideas, enthusiasm, energy and is looking forward to working with the members to enhance the junior programs, provide weekly clinics, participate in programs, offering private and semi-private lessons.
Tom looks forward to meeting as many members as possible so please join the board in welcoming Tom to the Aldershot Tennis Club.
Tom has been coaching tennis, in the Burlington and Hamilton area, for the past 20 years. He enjoys coaching in both private and group settings with students of all ages and levels. His interactive style incorporates fundamental instruction, along with a practical game-based approach, tailored to the individual needs of each player. Tom believes that learning to play tennis reflects various “life lessons” such as patience, the need to be playful and perseverance.

COVID-19 Emergency Brake and Club Closure
As previously communicated on April 1st, the Province of Ontario implemented an Emergency Brake that prohibited all Indoor Recreational Facilities and lead to the closure of the club.
Following this announcement, the Club is working with the City of Burlington, Public Health and sports dome manufactures to determine the safest method to take down the bubble in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. With the current restrictions regarding COVID and Indoor Recreational facilities we are taking every precaution to not put anyone at risk during bubble down.
The past year has been challenging for everyone, and the club would like to thank all our members for being understanding and adaptive to the changing guidelines implemented at the club. Everyone’s continued efforts to follow the rules and treat each other with respect will help ensure Aldershot Tennis Club can continue to provide tennis for our community as we look to get through this last phase.
On March 31st, the club received the Certificate of Substantial Performance for the clubhouse renovation, which is fantastic news. The final step in the process is a final inspection. Once the inspection is complete, the club will receive our occupancy permit and work with the City to understand how to manage clubhouse access under the current restrictions.
The club would like to thank everyone involved in this project over the past decade. The efforts carried out by past and present board members and everyone at the club is the only reason the ATC was able to undertake this project without outside funding. We can’t wait until we are able to throw a grand opening and celebrate this outstanding accomplishment.
We are a not-for-profit volunteer-run tennis facility for recreational and competitive players of all ages with four fully-lit Plexicushion surfaced courts for year-round play (enclosed by a heated bubble in the winter season). Professional lessons and clinics are available. Clubhouse facilities are provided for members’ and guests’ use. We have a full slate of leagues, round robins and ladder competitions and hold regular social events and tournaments.
