Orillia Tennis Club season begins with recognition of volunteers

Programming for tennis club starts today
Larry Fitzhenry, past president of the Orillia Tennis Club, received the Ontario Tennis Association's Bruce Childs Award in 2023.

Community sports run on the backs of its dedicated volunteers and tennis in Orillia is no different.

As part of the Ontario Tennis Association, your Orillia Tennis Club members have an opportunity of being recognized for their contributions to their community and to tennis in their specific region.

The Bruce Childs Award is a provincial recognition awarded to those local volunteers who have made a significant and important contribution to tennis within their community. Your Orillia Tennis Club is proud to launch the opening of the 2024 tennis season with the unveiling of the Orillia Tennis Club Bruce Childs recognition page on our Orillia Tennis Club website. Our pride in our award winners can be found at

Unveiled opening weekend 2024, this is a permanent addition to our website as it not only reflects our club’s founders but will also host new inductees as volunteers continue to make important contributions to tennis in our community. The expansion of the club’s tennis lessons, expanded programming for members, intercounty competitions and expanded junior lessons and programming all point to the healthy growth of tennis in Orillia, growth that is a direct result of the work of our volunteers. From that growth it’s easy to see that more members will be nominated for the coveted Bruce Childs Award in the future.
