How to Join

2022 Membership Info

(Updated March 22nd 2022)

Membership renewal registration closed on Monday, March 7th at 15:00.

Invitations for new members of the 2022 season have been sent out and completed.

Adult & Senior Memberships

If you wish to join as a new member for the coming years, you must register for the waitlist.

Note that currently there are already more than 800 names on the waitlist and therefore we have temporarily disabled the waitlist registration.

When spots become available (around February or March), we will email a number of names from the top of the waitlist (based on the number of spots available) with an invitation on how to register for membership and make payments.

When the names have dropped to a more manageable level, we will update this page with an advance heads-up of when the waitlist registration will be re-opened.

Thank you for your interest in Howard Park Tennis Club.

Junior Membership

For this 2022 season, juniors who only wish to participate in Camps and/or Clinics are not required to purchase a membership this season. If they wish to be able to book courts for regular play, then a junior membership is required.

Juniors who wish to join as a new member must register for the junior waitlist.

Note that we have temporarily closed the junior waitlist registration.

When spots become available (around February or March), we will email a number of names from the top of the waitlist (based on the number of spots available) with an invitation on how to register for membership and make payments.

When the names on the waitlist have dropped to a more manageable level, we will update this page with an advance heads-up of when the junior waitlist registration will be re-opened.

Note:

  • Juniors are those who are 18 years or under as of January 1st of the year that they register/renew.

  • Seniors are those who are 60 years or older as of January 1st of the year that they register/renew.

  • The New Member rate applies if you were not a member during the previous season.

Our Refund Policy

  • Requests for refunds on membership fees must be received by May 1 of the current membership year, the refund deadline.

  • A full refund will be issued minus a $25 administration fee. No refunds will be issued after the refund deadline.

Adult & Senior Waitlist Policy


  • Waitlist is based on a strict sequence.

  • Each Adult / Senior wishing to be on this waitlist (we have a separate waitlist for Juniors) must be individually registered regardless if you are a family or not (we do not offer family membership).

IMPORTANT: you must use a unique email address for each name.

  • Seniors are those who are 60 years or older as of January 1st of the year that they register/renew.

  • From November / December onward, we will send an email to those of you who are at and near the top of the waitlist. We request that you confirm whether you are still interested to join / wait. Failure to respond within 1 (one) week from the time the email was sent will result in your name being removed from the list and you will have to reapply.

  • When spots become available (around February or March), we will email a number of people from the top of the waitlist (based on the number of spots available) with an invitation on how to register for membership and make payments. Failure to register for membership and complete the payments within 3 (three) days will result in a rescinded invitation although your name will still be kept in sequence on the waitlist. We would then offer the spot to another name further down the list until all spots are taken.

  • It is your responsibility to make sure your email address is accurate and up-to-date.

Note that The City of Toronto asks that waitlist members from the City of Toronto must be given preference over those from outside the City borders.

FAQ

I've registered on the waitlist. Do I have a chance to get in this year?

It depends on where you are on the waitlist and how many members from the previous year decided to return.

How long is the waitlist?

As of Feb 7th 2022, after the waitlist has been refreshed, there are more than 800 names on the Adult & Senior waitlist.

When will I know if I can be a member?

Around February or March, if there are spots for new members, we will be contacting those who are at the top of the waitlist via email.

Does the waitlist continue year after year?

Yes, it does continue year after year.

I am a member. Can I add my family to my account for them to be a member as well?

Unfortunately no. They would have to sign-up on our waitlist and wait for an invite to be a member.

I heard I can line-up in person on Opening Day to register for membership. Is this true?

We did that in the past, but starting in 2021 we will only invite new members strictly from the waitlist.
