Outdoor courts at the Vancouver Tennis Center

Q. Do you have to be a member to play?
No. The Vancouver Tennis Center (VTC) is a public tennis and racquetball facility owned and operated by the City of Vancouver. Participants may utilize the facility in one of two ways. For those who play frequently, becoming a member (with monthly membership fees) may make the most sense. Non-members pay a per-person per-activity fee.

Q. What are the benefits of becoming a member of VTC?
Members may reserve courts seven days in advance, participate in all weekly in-house activities at no additional charge and receive discounts on all lesson programs. Non-members may reserve courts two days in advance, pay a non-member user fee for activities and pay standard rates for all lesson programs.

Q. How far in advance may I reserve a court?
A. Members may reserve courts seven days in advance; non-members may reserve courts two days in advance.
