To all seasonal OTA community club presidents:

Summer tennis players can now access winter play thanks to a new program developed by All Canadian Sports Management Inc. This will provide thousands of tennis enthusiasts the opportunity to play winter tennis without paying initiation and membership fees at some of Ontario’s first rate indoor facilities.

The new “Play Winter Tennis” program will offer Ontario Tennis Association summer community clubs the options of registering with All Canadian so that their members can then book a court at either the Astra Tennis Club in Vaughan, Toronto Tennis City in Davisville or Cedar Springs Health, Racquet & Sportsclub in Burlington from September 2013 through May 2014. Community members taking advantage of this program will be able to do same day booking for 9:30 and 10:30 pm weekdays or from 6:30 pm on weekends through providing the clubs identification number and paying the $40 court fee.

Community clubs representatives will also be able to reserve four courts for two hours on Saturday or Sunday evening for $320.

Pierre Lamarche, president of All Canadian said: “We are committed to growing the sport of tennis in this country at various levels. The specific access of affordable winter tennis is an issue due to the sizeable costs associated with operating a year round tennis facility. Clubs offer many great services to existing members but there are times when the courts are available and making these available to the general public is one way of growing the sport without interfering with their valuable members”

Clubs interested in this program should have their executive representative contact:

Allan Tse, Toronto Tennis City

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. I am very impressed by how the strict protocol has been handled and how everyone is invested in making this event a success, but The Open is a completely different scale of details.

Update on UK Tennis Situation with Master Louis Cayer

I would like to share a mindset I instil in all the players I coach, one I believe has greatly influenced all of the player’s performances; “whatever happens, I can handle it.” This mindset is achieved through a systematic, tactical development process, so that whoever the opponent, whatever the surface, regardless of the environment, or scoring, the players can, and will rise to the challenge as it is presented.
