It all starts somewhere. It starts with your help.

We don’t know where our passions will lead but we all remember that first time when it all started.

For Félix*, it was at the park, playing tennis with his dad when he was 7 years old. For Carson*, it was at her first ever tournament a few years back; she admits it wasn’t her best performance but she will always remember how much fun she had. For Charlotte*, it started as she watched her brother on the court and wanted to do the same.

At Tennis Canada, we are constantly working to build solid foundations in schools and parks to provide opportunities for kids 8 to 12 to adopt the sport of tennis. Still, it goes without saying that it is the success of our homegrown players that attracts them. Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard first inspired thousands of kids to pick up a racquet. Today, our tennis superstars are followed by a new generation of talents who are just as impressive Félix Auger-Aliassime, Bianca Andreescu and Françoise Abanda are among the best and brightest that Canadian tennis has ever produced. They continue to set new records wherever they go and their triumphs in the coming years will in turn inspire an entire new generation.

PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY.

We need your help to make sure all kids get that first opportunity to try a new sport. It starts with a first racquet, with an after-school community program, with easy access to courts. They may become Canada’s next champion or they may forever play in their neighbourhood park. Our goal is to get them started and experience the joy and maybe develop that same passion that drives our athletes.

*Félix Auger-Aliassime, Carson Branstine and Charlotte Robillard-Millette train at Tennis Canada’s National Training Centre.

THANK YOU.

 

As a player or fan, think about the passion and joy tennis has brought to your life. Cheering for your favourite Canadian player at the top of your lungs. The thrill of hitting that perfect backhand down the line for the first time.

Tennis has given so much to each of us, including many valuable skills – confidence, sportsmanship,and perseverance, just to name a few. We want to make sure all kids, particularly those who would otherwise never get the chance to play tennis, have the opportunity to experience that same joy and gain those same skills.

The tennis community is filled with some of the most passionate people out there. Imagine how tennis can affect the lives of young kids like it has yours. Tennis is a powerful game – it can change lives.

Join us in bringing this passion to more kids.

Tennis. Values for life.

 

With your help, we can bring Kids Tennis to communities across Canada, and give kids another way to stay active and healthy.

Tennis Canada, along with our provincial association partners, has spent the past few years establishing affordable programming that allows kids to try, learn, and play a “kid-sized” version of the game. The smaller courts, smaller racquets, and softer balls make the game fun, safe, and easy to play. By partnering with schools, parks, and recreation centres, as well as non-traditional partners such as Boys & Girls Clubs, programming is provided to kids who would otherwise not have access, making tennis accessible for all kids.

These initiatives are 100% funded by donations and would not be possible without your support.

2014 Highlights

Tennis Canada made great strides with expanding Kids Tennis in 2014, we now have 10 communities successfully providing fun, affordable, and accessible Kids Tennis programming.

Boys & Girls Clubs and Girl Guides Canada

In the fall of 2014, Tennis Canada formed new partnerships with Boys & Girls Club Canada and Girl Guides Canada, to deliver tennis programs to underserved communities, to children who would other not have the opportunity to play. This program is now running in the greater Toronto area and we hope to expand across the country.

Kids Wheelchair Tennis

The Kids Tennis program has also evolved to provide sport wheelchairs, so that children in wheelchairs can learn and most importantly PLAY the sport of tennis. These chairs provide more than just an opportunity to learn tennis; they provide a feeling of inclusiveness, a sense of purpose, and so much happiness for not only the child in the chair, but the entire family.
