This weekend TVCOGECO Halton will be in Burlington, Ontario at the Girls U16 National Selection tournament televising the finals. What a great opportunity for Canadian junior girls to showcase their talents and experience an atmosphere similar to that of the pros!

It’s a great way to improve the sport of tennis in Canada and get communities more involved. Let’s hope to see more events like this in the near future.

The commentators for the final will be Steve Knight and John Taylor. Steve Knight is the President of the Tyandaga Tennis Club and a lifelong tennis fanatic. John Taylor is a former NCAA college athlete and Canadian Junior National Champion and is currently coaching at ACE Tennis Burlington.

The Tyandaga Tennis Club in Burlington, Ontario will host the tournament. The tournament starts Friday June 14th at 2:30pm, with the final scheduled for Sunday June 16th at 12:30pm. The tournament is open to the public and admission is free.

A New Reality By Nicolas Pereira

This past week in the World Team Tennis ‘Bubble” I have seen the efforts to keep everyone safe while carrying on a team competition with around 60/70 players and coaches onsite. Counting organizers, officials, media, and support personnel are around 150 people trying hard to make this happen.
