Tuxedo Tennis Club Facilities

Tuxedo Tennis Club existed prior to the City of Winnipeg Amalgamation in 1972. At that time, there were four shale courts. It was upgraded to six courts prior to 1980 with some City funding combined with Club funds. The original clubhouse was a redeployed hockey warm-up shack with no water available or washroom facilities.

In 2008 Tuxedo Tennis Club acquired the Short Game Golf Centre building located at Taylor and Waverley in Winnipeg and made arrangements to move it to the existing site. The building cost the Club nothing. A tax receipt for donation of the building was issued by Tennis Canada. The Club signed a 25-year lease with the City at that time. The addition of the Clubhouse has made the Tuxedo Tennis Club a far more viable organization with increased membership and additional programs.

Since 2009, the Club has spent over $50,000.00 on resurfacing four of the courts and on fence replacements. Ongoing maintenance and smaller projects have been completed by club volunteers.

In 2015 TTC embarked on a major redevelopment of Courts 5 and 6, providing regulation distance between courts, new fencing, court resurfacing and nets.  In April 2017, new LED lighting was installed on Courts 5 & 6 to provide additional playing time in the evening. These improvements were made possible by our club’s financial and volunteer investment, along with a substantial City of Winnipeg Community Incentive Grant and the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.
