Tennis Toronto Committee Positions

There are five volunteer positions on the Tennis Toronto (TT) Committee:

 

 

Each position is elected at the Tennis Toronto AGM by club representatives in attendance (each club has 1 vote) and is held for 1 year. A person on the Committee may run again for the same or another position at the next AGM.

To run for a position at the AGM, you must be nominated by 2 member clubs and let Tennis Toronto know at least 20 days before the AGM by emailing our Administrative Assistant.
