Tennis in Canada needs you – Make a donation today

Tennis players and fans are a passionate breed!  We love our sport with all our heart and soul for all the incredible moments it provides us.  We know what this sport means, how complex and layered it is, how deep it can go. How consuming it can be. We know that tennis is equal parts physical, mental and emotional. We know it’s a way of life as well as a metaphor for life.

Tennis is not only our sport, it is something that defines us deeply and we follow it proudly.

You may be surprised to learn that only 1% of Tennis Canada’s funding comes from government sources.  The incredible results we have seen over the last few years have been funded mainly through two sources:  proceeds from Rogers Cup and you, the devoted tennis fan! 

We want to continue making a difference in the lives of Canadians through tennis.  Whether that means more champions like Milos and Genie at the top of the world stage or ensuring all Canadians, regardless of financial means, benefit from all that tennis has to offer.

We hope you will join us and help bring our combined passion for tennis to the whole country – please give today.

Yours in tennis,




Kelly D. Murumets
President & CEO, Tennis Canada


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.
