Unfortunately, the infection situation in Oslo has developed in the wrong direction. We have therefore decided to cancel this year’s Christmas gift game. This does not mean that the children lose the opportunity to play for Christmas presents – we will carry out the Christmas gift game in small groups at the regular training sessions in December
Interest in this autumn’s course has broken all records, and there are almost no free spots. We have some spots available in red groups, and we have very few places available between 07:00 and 10:00 for the adult courses. Contact us if you are interested.
Unfortunately, there will be no camp during the autumn holidays (week 40). The good news is that we are putting a new team on the tennis deck in week 40! There are many working days at Christmas, and we offer camp in week 51 (Monday 20 – Wednesday 22) for both children and adults.
Registration is open. Adult courses start 16/8, and children courses start 23/8. Do not create a new account in Matchi if you are either a member, has been on a course with us, or have had private lessons – use your existing account. Contact email@example.com if you have any problems or questions.
OTK offers an additional 10-week spring course for all levels of play. We offer time slots for red, orange, green, yellow ball players and adults at different times throughout the week. It’s possible to play once or more times a week or as an additional hour for those who have been already participating in our regular courses. Prices depends on the age, membership and how many times per week you want to play.
We invite you to a minicamp on the outdoor courts in the easter holiday (March 29-31) unless new corona restrictions make it impossible. The camp is for players born between 2002 and 2014. You can sign up for 3 days.
Red practice between 09:00 and 10:30, 1,5 hours every day. Price 675,-
Orange/Green/Yellow practice between 09:00 and 13:00, 2 hours every day. The camp will be split into orange, green and yellow groups. The time for each player will be decided Friday 26 March.
The final decision whether there will be a camp or not (depending on number of registrations) will be made on Friday the 26th at 4 pm
OTK arranges minicamp for red, orange and green groups from Monday 21/12 to Wednesday 23/12.
Red and Orange 09:00-10:30 and Green 10:30-12:00. The price per player is 750, -.
Registration is via Matchi under activities – remember to use your child’s Matchi account. Send an e-mail to OTK with the child’s name if you do not remember which e-mail you used in the child’s account. Registration deadline is Thursday 17/12 at 16:00
Important! Only for children born in 2008 and later!
Over the past year, there have been small drops of information from the club to the members about a permit received here, a complaint there, and a positive decision here. After 8 years of work, we have finally come so far that we can clearly say: Now we will build a tennis hall!
Construction of the tennis hall
OTK received a permit this summer, and in September the County Governor rejected complaints about the permit. The county governor’s decision is final. In a short time
OTK will start on phase 1 of an interaction contract with the construction company Bundebygg. The goal of this phase is to design the tennis hall in detail and agree on a target price for the hall. The project will then apply for a start-up permit
The schedule for the demolition and construction start will be ready during the spring. Without making hasty promises, we assume the start of demolition sometime in the second or third quarter of 2021
It is expected that the construction period will be 15-18 months
Construction of houses on courts 11 and 12
The 2017 annual meeting decided to sell these two courts plus some additional area (a total of approx. 3.3) to finance the new tennis hall
Oslo Municipality unanimously adopted a zoning plan for the site that allows a somewhat higher utilization rate than the original zoning
We have been through a lawsuit and an expropriation process with the County Governor and the Ministry of Local Government. Now the expropriation of the easement is final, and the buyer of the property can now build according to the zoning plan. Oslo District Court will decide how much OTK must pay in compensation to those who lose the right to sue the easement
This – in addition to public funds – means that the tennis hall is fully financed
Courses and bookings during the construction period
We are working on different options, and expect to get back to members with more information in the first quarter of 2021
