Wimbledon Charity Event is this Saturday, July 15th from 9-1pm.


What is it?

It’s an annual event that’s full of tennis fun, including an opportunity to play with local tennis professionals in our “Pro-Am” tournament, Wimbledon themed food and drinks, and all the while with the Wimbledon Finals playing on the big screen in the clubhouse.

Most important, the day also includes a Silent Auction and Raffle to raise funds for an important local charity – The Doug Philpott Inner-City Children’s Tennis Fund.

When is the event?

Saturday July 15th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

How much?

A donation of only $25 will send a child to camp for an entire week.


With your support we can all help to raise funds for the Philpott Fund and help provide free tennis lessons for many of Toronto’s inner city children who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to enjoy the game of tennis, improve their skills and, just perhaps, discover a love of the game.

If we can hit our fundraising target, 200 children could benefit from this single event and have an amazing tennis camp experience this summer.

How can you help?

Our goal is to raise $5,000 from all of the day’s activities with 100% of the proceeds being directed to the Philpott Fund. The main fundraising event is our Silent Auction and we are seeking items for the auction.

In addition to supporting a great cause, we believe it is a great opportunity to promote your business to the approximately 800 members of the Leaside Tennis Club itself.
