Top Tips for Tennis Registration

This post was written by Anne Jul 30, 2019 in General, Tennis

With the North Vancouver Tennis Centre being the central hub for public tennis on the North Shore, competition for space in our programs can be fierce. Here are some valuable tips that can give you a leg up on registration, so that you can ace all of your serves!

1.    Get assessed by our top level professional tennis staff

Anyone wishing to register in a program above the 2.5 level at NVTC will need to be assessed and given a Performance on Demand rating. Ensuring all players have an up-to-date rating maintains our excellent standards of play in all of our programs.

Our assessment service is free! Simply call our front office (604-983-6483), or stop by the centre to book an assessment time. You will be given a 15 minute assessment from a member of our professional tennis staff. Take advantage of their feedback to take your game to the next level!

2.    Choose the Method of Registration that Works Best for You!

There are many ways to register! Whether you are at home, at work, or on the go, there is a method of registration that will work for you: 

  • Online at This allows for quick and easy registration from the comfort of your laptop.
  • In person at the North Vancouver Tennis Centre. Registration begins at 7:00 am on the morning of registration day. Lines are usually small, and registrations are quick.
  • Over the phone by calling 604 983 6483. We are staffed with several registration agents who are more than happy to serve you!

3.    Ensure you have an  account on our new registration system

The day before registration, make sure that you have an account with NVRC set up and that you have all of your information:

  1. Email and password
  2. Course ID numbers
  3. Credit card number

4.   Place a Credit on your NVRC account before registration day

On the morning of registration day, every second counts. Programs at NVTC can fill within minutes, so why waste precious time entering your Credit Card information online?  Call or visit any Front Office to credit your NVRC account with the appropriate funds for your registration. This allows you to skip the payment step online, and register for your desired programs even faster!

4.    Know Your Course ID Numbers

There are several ways to get information on which Tennis courses will be available on registration day. You can use our “Find a Program” feature on, you can pick up one of our lovely leisure guides, or tennis-specific brochures are available at the North Vancouver Tennis Centre. One of the benefits of visiting the centre to get brochures is that you can use our tennis and front office staff’s expert knowledge on NVTC’s programs.

Once you have found the courses that work for your level and schedule, record your course ID numbers so that you can access them quickly on registration day.

5.    Don’t Close the Window! 

With hundreds of tennis players eagerly trying to register for their desired courses online on registration day, sometimes web registrations may take a couple of minutes longer than normal. The best course of action to take when you encounter a slow computer is to wait! Closing your browser window before the transaction completes will cause you to lose the registration you woke up so early for!

Registration for spring tennis programs begins on  Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 7:00ams.
