Humberto Pacheco, speaking on behalf of Brian Eschbach President of the Dryden Tennis Club described how Dryden lacks the facilities of other local communities such as Kenora or Sioux Lookout. This lack of courts prevents DTC from holding local tournaments and improving our young players.
The club’s motto is “Promoting Tennis through TRY, LEARN, PLAY and COMPETE for opportunities and events.” The club has been in existence since 2010.

Since 2012, DTC has been providing lessons to grade 6-8 pupils and DHS students.  DTC provides all of the equipment. In 2014, the club incorporated as a nonprofit corporation.
 
The Tennis Club has also obtained equipment to allow persons to play Pickleball. Pickleball is a paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports. It has the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, while the net and rules are somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. The invention of Pickleball occurred in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime.
 
 
 
Tennis Thursdays provide a year-round opportunity for participants to TRY and LEARN Progressive Tennis throughout spring, summer and fall at Milestone Rink (Morison Avenue) and New Prospect School through the winter.
