The coaches and organizers were up to the challenge once again this year in

development of each tennis player and a sense of fraternity from the
coaches and the players. We support you and we expect another 2018 season

France made their first months of tennis a rewarding and fun experience.

terrific experience being a Tennis Wychwood Club member because the courses
were so well prepared by the friendly instructors. It was a pleasure to
play with young people of the same level. Summer went by too fast!

writing to speak of the excellent work done by the team of volunteers at
the Wychwood Tennis Club. This year, my spouse and I joined the club for
the first time and were very surprised by the kindness of all of the
volunteers and the efforts displayed in order to ensure that all of the
events that took place during the season (for example, tournaments,
leagues, méli-mélo) were a tremendous success. Without the involvement of
the volunteers, we would not have benefited from events that were so well

like to express my high level of satisfaction with the instruction received
over the years at the Tennis Club Wychwood. My oldest son, Luka, who is now
11, has been taking spring and summer classes at the club since he was 6
and my younger son, Oliver, who is now 6, has been coming for the past 2
years. Both love their classes. The instructors are always very
professional and fun at the same time. They provide a very positive role
model for my boys. The Club is an invaluable asset to the community of
Aylmer and one that we hope will continue indefinitely into the future.
Children of all ages have benefited and continue to benefit from this
professional and warm place to come together and learn a sport in a
positive and enriching environment.
taking a few minutes to write to thank you for organizing the end of the
season celebration. Noémie and Simon had a lot of fun. I also take this
opportunity to congratulate you and to thank you for another great season
of tennis. The instructors’ exemplary professionalism and enthusiasm have
greatly contributed to this summer’s success. Our children are developing a
growing interest for tennis!! Thank you also to all the organizers and
members of the Board of Directors, and in particular France, for the
quality of the Club’s administration. The information was clearly
communicated to us and the Wychwood Tennis Club is in good hands!
enchanting site, very personable coaches.
to all the volunteers! Hats off!
season coming to an end …. What to say of the jewel that is the Wychwood
Club. I do not know where to begin to express the gratifying words for the
Club that has offered over the course of the last years good experiences
for the youth and the parents. I sincerely hope that the Wychwood Tennis
Club will continue to offer its services for generations to come. Thank you
again to all the instructors who continue to impress me year after year!
contribution to the community. Professional, friendly and dedicated. Summer
wouldn’t be the same without the Wychwood Tennis Club.
Wychwood Tennis Club organizes a series of activities that enables me to
really enjoy my tennis season: méli-mélo evenings on Monday, leagues on
Thursday, clinics on Friday, ladder league, the club’s tournament,
instructors present to play with us when we have no partner … what more to
ask for! I am a recreational player, and I have managed to improve my game
considerably during this last season because of the quality of the services
offered. Through its numerous activities, we meet other players; it makes
for more fun tennis matches. Thank you to the whole team – volunteers and
instructors, you are great.
to Wychwood Tennis and its amazing team of coaches and organizers, we had
another great summer. We love the SWAT program and wish it would have
lasted even longer. And we love the positive energy and enthusiasm of the
coaches. They really know how to engage the kids and build their passion
for this wonderful sport. Hope to see the whole gang back next summer.

Hope they can continue next spring.
Volunteers of the Wychwood Tennis Club,
a great team,
Last spring, I was surfing the Web to find a sport
for my children and I was lucky to find the Wychwood Tennis Club’s website.
My husband and I registered our three children: Lary, Dallaire and Flaubert
to tennis classes and to the junior league. On the courts, we have met
devoted and engaged volunteers. Jonathan and Vincent were always ready to
greet the youth with a smile. We have appreciated Jonathan and Vincent’s
commitment towards the children. They took care of the children and made
sure that arrangements had been made for them to go back home. Our three
children have really enjoyed their tennis experience because they have met
fascinating and reliable volunteers. They had fun and they have decided to
continue to play tennis. It is a sense of achievement for the whole family.
Thank you very much to the Wychwood team.
Hoping to see you again next year, we wish you a
We thank you profusely for the devotion you have shown towards all
the Club’s future tennis players! You are patient, responsive, considerate
and organized. No need to mention that my children love their courses and
can’t wait to attend them each time.
Thank you again for this wonderful season and see
you next summer!

granddaughters took tennis classes for one session in the beginners’ group

were very patient and competent. They had a good sense of humour and knew
how to encourage the efforts made by the young players.
in the morning league (3 times) and Alexis and Sandra are very nice and I
really appreciate the fact that they join us when necessary. They adapt
their level to ours when they play with us. We know that they are much
better players than all of us and they are very modest and respectful. They
are always in a good mood and are helpful.
Thank you France and the whole team of
volunteers and coaches for your devotion and being so nice.
the good work, we really appreciate all of you!
Bélisle and Mounthara Sydavong
like to thank Tennis Wychwood for my son’s spring and summer sessions. I am
amazed at how much progress he made in a few short months -- he’s gone from
simply trying to get the ball over the net to working on his top spin! Full
credit goes to the fantastic coaching staff. Their ability to keep a group
of young active kids organized and focussed on learning while still having
fun is impressive. All of my kids have played many sports -- recreational
and competitive -- so I have seen a lot of different coaching styles with
varying outcomes. The Wychwood group is a model coaching team. Energetic,
encouraging, professional and unbelievably patient with kids of all
abilities and personality types. I cannot say enough good things about our
experience with Tennis Wychwood. Thank you very much to all of the coaches!
A special thank you to France too. I appreciate her warmth, dedication, and
excellent administration of the programs.
My children have been taking courses with the Wychwood Tennis Club
for three years now. The coaches are competent and dynamic. They propose a
lot of educational and different alternatives to the game. They know how to
make people love the sport right from the first class. The children improve
their game at an astounding pace. We feel welcomed to the Club and at home
right from the start.
Congratulations to the whole coaching team and
11 year old son, started playing tennis this summer. We have discovered a
new sport and were pleased with our experience. Since the Broad court is
close to our home, Antoine was able to leave his day camp (3 mornings per
week) and bike to his tennis classes. For once we have activities and
services in Aylmer; we need to encourage them to continue. Thank you to the
whole team for your energy, passion and devotion. Thank you France for your
fast replies to our questions. You are a great team! Thank you and keep up
the good work. We hope to be able to continue the lessons next summer.

years. My instructor Patrick is one of a kind. He is extremely dedicated to
teaching and knows how to personalize his instruction to improve my
dexterity. I feel committed to continue to progress.
coaches, do such a wonderful job teaching these kids and making the game of
tennis fun. I just wish the kids would appreciate your hard work as much as
we do. They love you guys - but, they do not seem to realize how hard you
work with them to become better players or at least enjoy the sport.
Thank you for all your hard work and great
patience with the kids.
to the whole team, to the coaches for sharing with the children your love
of tennis and the fun you have in playing this sport. You are making
great memories for all these little faces!
My name is Christine and my two children have been members of the

It is an integral part of our community.

The adaptability in the structure and in
the services, the guidance from which my children benefitted through the courses
and activities of this Club makes it an essential element for the planning
of the summer activities for my family.
This model organization is key to make my
children want to play a sport. They have discovered and learned how to play
tennis in a quality environment.
The quality and competence of the Club’s team have
an immense positive impact on my family!
Wychwood Tennis Club perfectly meets my expectations and my needs to make
my children appreciate this sport.
Another nice tennis season for our family with
Aylmer’s Wychwood tennis club. It is my 15th season as a member
of this Club. I have seen the eclosion of a dynamic club that has elevated
tennis to another level in Aylmer.
First, I wish to express my appreciation to all
the members of the Board, the other volunteers at the Club as well as to
the coaching team. Congratulations to all of you for being able to transmit
your passion for this nice sport to our youth.
Through its numerous activities and dynamic team,
the Wychwood Tennis Club is able to elevate this sport every year to a
level of social activity where all participants, the children, their
parents and other adults, get to know each other and feel that they belong
to the Club. Thanks to Wychwood Tennis, tennis is blooming in Aylmer and
all the residents benefit from this.
I am thankful for the tennis in Aylmer and wish a
long life to the Wychwood Tennis Club!
past 17 years, my three children have been involved in tennis. I hope there
is no increase in the fees since I would not be able to enroll my kids into
tennis. They very much enjoy this game. It is one of the few that is
affordable so please don’t increase our fees. Tennis Wychwood has a terrific team. R.L.
time ago we were introduced to the wonderful organization of Tennis
Wychwood. My daughter, who plays at two tennis schools locally, and I can
promise you the attention and dedication that this Club show towards not
only the physical well-being and mental being is incomparable. In this day
and age where physical activity is being compromised by electronics, it is
even more important to support these kids and not only get them on the
court but keep them on the court. Very happy to be part of a wonderful
kids really enjoyed the course and we hope that the courses will continue.
and I have been members for 4 years and had never played before. The
affordability of the membership, leagues and children courses made it a
simple decision to try it, and the joy of the game made it easier to keep
coming back each season… The cost of the courses for children have allowed
me to enroll my son each season. He has improved and enjoys playing this
wonderful game that keeps him active. The various members who keep coming
back make the leagues both competitive and social opportunities for me. Everyone
is friendly and knows each other.
Wychwood Tennis Club means so much to my family. My children have been
taking lessons as well as taking part in the extra activities, games and
tournaments. The instructors are amazing with the kids and my kids are
learning so much and having fun. I have also taken group and private
lessons this summer and often meet with friends to play. We are all very
grateful to the instructors and organizers who make all of this possible. Summer
wouldn’t be the same without it.
name is M.Z. and I have been living in Gatineau for 10 years. I started to bring
my son Samuel to Tennis Wychwood since 2012 and we both love to learn and
play tennis here. We love the people and coaches we meet here. They are
professional and dedicated to teach kids how to play tennis. My son learned
a lot, not only how to play tennis but also how to enjoy sport with others.
We really want to come back to Tennis Wychwood for the next several years.
tennis improved considerably with the summer junior ladder league. Her
instructor Mathieu always provided her with positive feedback which has
also allowed her to enjoy tennis while learning the technical aspects. Thank
you Jonathan, Mathieu and Vincent.
to the Wychwood Tennis Club. The whole team’s motivation, commitment and
ability to have fun while teaching tennis have contributed yet again in
helping a number of young and older persons to discover, love and make good
progress at tennis. After a couple of summers, I am proud to see that my
ten years old can play such nice rounds! Thank you.
you for teaching me how to play tennis. I have enjoyed my summer. The
instructors are very nice.
Philippe (junior player)
I had a
good summer with you. I like you a lot.
Louis (junior player)
tennis club is a gem in Aylmer. All the coaches are truly phenomenal,
motivating and patient with the kids. I took an adult tennis course with
them this year and I improved my tennis skills tremendously. Cannot wait
until next year to take another course!
very satisfied with Alexis’ work during our morning leagues at Moussette.
He was always on time, a strong player, polite and patient. Thank
father of two young boys, 11 and 7 years old, very energetic and with concentration
problems, I would like to thank the Wychwood Tennis Club for their
exceptional job last summer, as well as for the quality and the range of
activities that it offers to Aylmer’s youth. As an educator, I can only
congratulate the Wychwood Tennis Club and its team of young, dynamic and
kind instructors for the quality of the programs offered that ranges from
tennis courses at various levels, the junior ladder league, as well as the
Friday night activities for the 5 to 15 years old. With this variety of
offering, the Club has achieved a dynamic and real community spirit.
thing, the lessons are extremely well structured, with a good mixture of
fun and technique so that it can reach and interest youth of all levels of
play. As for the ladder league, it gives young players a chance to be
initiated gradually to the tennis rules, while improving their
concentration and their willingness to play. The league therefore
represents a chance to play with friends more than a willingness to
perform. As a result, it is common to see young players seeking occasions
to play for fun with others on the practice field close to the playground,
inventing new rules or reproducing the games they played during their
lessons. Also, what can be said of the Friday night activity that was
viewed as a fun place to be for 45 young enthusiastic, good and not so
good, young and not so young players, in a relaxed and open environment,
full of joy and laughter, in short an activity that my kids really wanted
I would not want to miss this opportunity to especially and significantly
draw attention to the exceptional contribution of these young instructors
who take care of our youth. These young responsible men are happy,
responsible, fascinating and also very dedicated young men. I cannot find
enough words to explain the important role that they play in my children’s
life. Real models, they are authentic as well as wonderful educators that
have nothing to envy to our professionals in the education world.
this, you will have understood that the Wychwood Tennis Club is a real gem
for our Aylmer youth, and I would even say, for the entire community. It is
a precise example of what constitutes the wealth of a community as it helps
develop and bridge solid and durable relations amongst the members of the
community and our youth while, over and above the increasing pleasure of
playing tennis, helps to teach kids how to have fun together and to share
with new friends, young and not so young.
word, thank you to the Wychwood Tennis Club and its instructors for this
wonderful summer spent in your company. I will be back next year!
gang at Wychwood,
I want to let you know that I admire you for the energy, patience and enthusiasm
that you demonstrate every day. You are exceptional persons; you have shown
that you are intelligent, both emotionally and mentally, and that you are
accomplished tennis instructors! For me, you are the tennis club! You were
meant to be coaches; you always emphasize the positive aspects of the
youths’ skills and the youths adore you. I also wish to draw attention to
your commitment to the club, which is an attitude that seems outdated but
that gives meaning to life. You have proven that it’s always better to have
fun while learning! I am very happy that my son can grow personally with
you through the summer by being in the “SWAT”. He has gained a lot of
confidence by being around you. He has had a dream summer because of you!
In our very busy life, we don’t take the time often enough to thank and to
show our recognition. It is better to ask and make things happen like you
did. So, hats off to the whole team, and special thanks to Vincent,
Jonathan, Jérémi and Mathieu, with whom I have spent more time this summer.
You are good models for our youth and are nice people. And, of course thank
you France for overseeing everything and for putting together such a great
group tennis classes at Wychwood are outstanding! The coaches, staff and
all the members are phenomenal.
would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the young instructors,
not only for their efforts but also for their interpersonal skills and
their devotion with the youth. The whole team’s work was exceptional, from
the tennis courses to the tournament that was organized in a professional
manner. We will most likely be there again next summer. Again, thank you so
much to the whole team!
writing to thank the Wychwood Tennis Club as well as its instructors for
another excellent season (2014). Two of our three children play tennis and
we are very thankful for having been able to benefit from a physical
activity that is accessible to us at an affordable cost and for the
professional quality of the lessons. The instructors’ motivation and their
approach with the youth are remarquable and our children are always happy
when it’s time to go to the tennis court! Don’t change anything to this
winning formula and many thanks!
for your great work!
like to thank the SWAT instructors Vince, Mathieu, Gerry, Jo. You have been
wonderful. Troy had a lot of fun while learning. He enjoyed spending his
Friday afternoon with the gang. Keep up your excellent work; he will
definitely be back next year.
delightful site, good quality courts and a friendly atmosphere, what more
to ask for.
years, the Wychwood Tennis Club has promoted tennis in Aylmer by offering
lessons of quality and an opportunity to play tennis through various
activities for all age groups. We shouldn’t change a winning formula so
let’s not change this tennis club.
Enjoy playing tennis, Julien
like to thank the coaches at Wychwood for a great summer. As a beginner, I
was afraid I would feel out of place and self-conscious, but the patience,
support and positive attitude of the coaches gave me the confidence to
learn and improve my skills while having fun.
Wychwood Tennis Club organizes a series of activities that enables me to
really appreciate my tennis season: Monday night’s Méli-Mélo, Thursday’s
league, Friday’s clinics, the ladder league, the club’s tournament,
instructors that are available to play when we don’t have a partner … what
else can I ask for! I play for fun but, thanks to the quality of the
services offered, I have managed to greatly improve my tennis skills over
the course of this last season. The numerous activities have made it easier
to meet other players and to dispute more satisfying tennis matches. Thanks
to the whole team – volunteers and instructors; you are exceptional!
Even though there are still many weeks of tennis
left for the morning league, I wish to thank Alexis, our attendant, who is
always there, in a good mood and who is a challenging opponent during our
tennis games. I also take this opportunity to thank Denise Comtois who has
been responsible for the morning league for many years now.
In my opinion,
the Wychwood Tennis Club is a lot more than a tennis club. I have played on
all of the City of Gatineau’s courts and even in Ottawa, but nothing equals
Wychwood’s atmosphere and ambiance, which is created mostly by the
volunteers, the people that we meet over there, the activities organized by
the Club, the instructors and the attendants. For me, a tennis enthusiast,
this greatly enhances the quality of life in the Aylmer sector.
