Help kids find their beat with tennis.

Tennis in Canada continues to grow every single year with more kids then ever jumping on a court and keeping active! At Tennis Canada we are focused on providing year-round affordable and accessible Kids’ Tennis programs to children of all backgrounds.

Last year, thanks to our generous donors, thousands of kids had their first opportunity to try the game of tennis, in a school, summer park or community program. Every gift was put to work to help kids get excited about a new sport while developing skills that help them in their every day life – perseverance, communication and team work to name a few.

Working with our community partners, we were able to deliver programs across Canada to children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to discover our sport. We were even able to bring tennis programs to remote areas such as Fort Resolution in the Northwest Territories!

While we are proud of these achievements, there is so much more we can do! We want to keep kids engaged in the game and we want even more children to join programs.

Join us on our mission to help kids find their beat with tennis!
