***Pierre Lamarche has been an outspoken proponent of Canadian tennis and how the sport should have a major place in the Canadian sport landscape. He believes this lofty ambition can only be achieved through the combination of success on the international professional competitive scene, with the required domestic infrastructure and a true partnership between Tennis Canada and the tennis private sector.***
Christophe Lambert has been hired as the new Head Coach for the Toronto National Junior Training Program. Lambert is a former junior and professional coach from France, having served as the head coach at one of Marseille’s top competition level tennis clubs and for the French Tennis Federation’s U14 program, and has been working in the Canadian tennis system since 2009. The training program, which is run out of the Rexall Centre, has been in place since 2009 and serves as a passageway for promising juniors into the full-time National Training Centre (NTC) in Montreal. Lambert will transition from his current position as director of high performance club and talent development with Tennis Canada.
