New tennis experience

Under new ownership, the tennis facility at Greenhills Golf Club in Lambeth is undergoing renovations and will feature 11 top-notch courts (six indoor and five outdoor). The new name? Total Tennis London at Greenhills

The tennis facility at Greenhills Golf Club in Lambeth is about to get a major facelift, and will soon offer an excellent tennis experience for players in the region. Total Tennis Inc. entered into a partnership with ClubLink Corp. to own and operate the indoor/outdoor facility at Greenhills, and the five-year lease (beginning in January 2018) called for the repair of the roof of the indoor courts to be completed this fall. The new name of the club? Total Tennis London at Greenhills.

The club will feature five beautiful outdoor har-tru clay courts and six indoor hard courts. The facility offers changerooms and showers, and an elevated spectator area that oversees the first three indoor hard courts. Various memberships and play packages are available.

“Our goal is to grow the membership and grassroots programs while maintaining and supporting current members and programs,” said Bill Maron, the owner and founder of Total Tennis. “One of our main focuses will be on providing high-quality programs, right from ‘Tots’ (3 and 4-year-olds) and through all ages up to 17 as well as beginner adult lessons.”

Maron has 25 years experience managing tennis facilities, and has developed a partnership with his hometown of Aurora, offering lessons and camps for more than 500 residents annually.

“We have had success with our camp offerings at other locations … Holiday, March Break and Summer camps … and we hope to continue this trend in London,” Maron said. “We’re also strongly considering adjusting our price structure to make it more affordable to play at our club.”

The new ownership is also hoping to re-surface the courts in September of 2018. The manager currently in place at Greenhills, Susan Smorowski, will continue in her role, as will coach Anthony Glavanic.

In January, Total Tennis head coach Jordan Master will be offering free tennis evaluations, and anyone considering playing at the new club is invited to come out and meet Jordan.

Meanwhile, the club is even communicating with local pickleball groups in hopes of adding pickleball lines to one of the indoor courts. In other words, it’s a busy and exciting time for Total Tennis London at Greenhills. And soon it will be an exciting time for players as well!
