Our History

In 1909 the first court was constructed under the boughs of Como’s once-famous and majestic Royal Oaktree. The Royal Oak tennis club is one of the oldest tennis clubs in Canada. Founded over 110 years ago our private club is family-oriented, social, welcoming to all ages and levels, and is here for the love of the sport! Generations of local families have been club members here at the ROTC!
