In terms of location, maintenance, quality and ambiance, Donalda Club's twelve har-tru clay courts are reputed to be the finest of any private club in Toronto, Ontario and all of Canada. Nestled in a mature subdivision of Toronto, away from highways and heavy traffic, the courts are surrounded by large trees and floral gardens in a park-like setting. The low member-to-court ratio is another attractive feature offering court availability almost any time.
The impeccable maintenance of the clay courts and surrounding areas by our experienced staff is second to none.
Six clay courts are covered by a heated tennis bubble from October through to April, offering top quality, year-round tennis to our members. The exceptionally bright indirect lighting system, the extra large playing areas behind and beside each court, plus the direct access to the bubble from the clubhouse put this bubble facility in a class by itself.
The Donalda Club has a very dynamic section and has received many accolades.
To name a few:
Tennis Canada-Tennis Development Center
Tennis Canada –Facility Excellence Award
Tennis Canada-Indoor Nationals Award of Excellence
Ontario Tennis Association-Special Community Award
