The best sports clubs in Toronto offer more than just a place to sweat it out—they offer a sense of community, well-being, and athletic fun for their dedicated members. Each club has its own atmosphere, so it’s important to find a good fit. Here is a sample of some of Toronto’s most popular sports clubs, offering a variety of teams, leagues, and membership options.
Toronto Sport and Social Club
Located north of downtown, the Toronto SSC offers team or individual registration options for most of their athletic programs. Anyone over the age of 19 is free to play, with the majority of members being in their 20s and 30s. They provide both single-sex and co-ed, recreational and more advanced programs. There’s no annual membership at the SCC—you only pay for the games in which you participate.
Extreme Toronto Sports Club
In North York, the Extreme Toronto Sports Club (XTSC) opened in 2004 through the initiative of a group of sports enthusiasts with a mission to focus on putting the fun and excitement back into the Toronto sports scene. Open to men and women in teams or individually, XTSC offers year-round programs that include both indoor and outdoor soccer (turf soccer, grass soccer, and gymnasium soccer), court volleyball (fall, winter, and spring), and Ultimate, a game played with a flying disc.

Toronto Athletic Club
In the heart of downtown Toronto, the Toronto Athletic Club dubs itself “the club in the sky.” With incredible views of the city skyline through the floor-to-ceiling windows, the club has a large gym, a swimming pool, and a sports medicine clinic. Squash is a primary sport at this club, with an extensive schedule of events and competitions.
The Boulevard Club
