June Edition – Letter from the Editor

June 1, 2021

Dearest readers,

It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to the rebirth of our ONcourt eZine, the voice of Canadian tennis.  With 2021 bringing a vast amount of change to the tennis community and world climate, now more than ever we need a prominent and representative voice for the game we all love.

Our mission is to “Grow the Game” in Canada and around the world through thoughtful and engaging articles, interviews, and video. We have recruited movers and shakers in the tennis, health, analytics, and coaching industries to bring you leading edge content, breathing life to the sport. Monthly editions will feature content from our contributing authors & editors, all experts in their respective fields.

ONcourt is a publication run for, and by, the tennis community. We are inspired by the voices of our contributors, and more specifically, of the multitude of voices within our tennis community.

As an objective publication, we would like to be as transparent as possible. * For this reason, we gladly welcome any comments and critiques you may have as a reader. Letters to the editor are also highly encouraged and will be considered for publication on our website. We also invite you to subscribe to updates, where you will receive a monthly summary of each edition.

I am elated to be furthering the voice of Canadian tennis, and we hope you enjoy ONcourt as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Best,

Laurence Lamarche, Executive Editor, ONcourt

 

*As a publication, we do not advocate for any specific political ideology, but we have set standards regarding the posting of harmful and denigrating pieces as it relates to minority groups. We see our platform as a sacred space of voices, and thus, view that it is our responsibility to highlight the diversity in the sport and to use our platform as a space of learning. That is why we exist. The freedom of speech, however, does not mean the freedom of hate speech.
