Whistler Racquet Club

Whistler, British Columbia Canada

By Roger Cox, Editor

Whistler/Blackcomb in Canada's British Columbia is best known for its stellar—and year-round—skiing, but savvy tennis players have also discovered that this award-winning resort also has an exceptional tennis venue in the Whistler Racquet Club. Although former Top 50 player Marjorie Blackwood, a three-time Canadian champion, and her busgand National Masters Doubles Champion Peter Schelling no longer direct the day-dto-day operations, they do continue to run a handful of camps on selected dates during the summer. Sandwiched in among those programs are "Skills & Drills Scandinave Spa Camps", variously run by DJ Jansen or Kirk Paterson, and on Mixed Doubles and one Ladies Doubles "Champagne Camp" run by Whistler Sports Academy Director Jamie Grant. All in all, there is something scheduled for nearly every weekend from late May to late September, as well as a variety of daily programs during the week.

The club has 10 hard courts (three of them covered), grouped around a clubhouse with a fireside bar/lounge, pro shop, and exercise room. Many summer weekends are given over to special programs. From late June to mid August, there are also 3-hour-a-day midweek camps for juniors. Meanwhile, even if you miss one of the camps, you can look forward to socials, leagues, and game matching while having full access to all the summer mountain recreation Whistler/Blackcomb offers. Lodging rates in the area can be remarkably reasonable, making this at once a superb tennis getaway and uncommon bargain.
