Early career

Schenning started his career at Robur et Velocitas, before transferring to Go Ahead Eagles, where he was promoted to the senior side in 1987. He played in nine seasons for the club, before leaving in 1996.

Willem II

In July 1996, Schenning joined Willem II for a fee of ƒ1 million, signing a three-year contract. He made his league debut on 21 August 1996 in a 0–0 away draw against Groningen. Schenning scored his first goal in the 1997–98 season on 26 April 1998 against RKC Waalwijk, a match Willem won 4–1. During the 1999–2000 season, he participated in their UEFA Champions League season, where he scored once against Sparta Prague in the first group stage on 20 October 1999, which Willem lost 3–4.

Den Bosch

In February 2000, Schenning completed a move to Den Bosch, joining Christopher Wreh. Schenning made his first appearance against PSV Eindhoven on 6 February 2000 in a 2–6 home loss at De Vliert. During the club's 2000–01 season, which saw them compete in the Eerste Divisie, following their relegation from the top flight, he netted his first league goal on 4 September 2000 in a 2–0 win played at 's-Hertogenbosch over TOP Oss, in which he was also ejected after a foul. It proved to be his only goal, as Schenning was dismissed by the side along with ten other players due to their economic difficulties.

NAC Breda

On 31 October 2000, it was announced that Schenning had been purchased by NAC Breda on a two-and a half-year deal.
