Tennis Canada Overview

Do you remember that thrill you got the first time you hit a ball cleanly over the net?  What about that moment you actually aced an opponent with a serve that painted the line, or chased down that ball even you thought wasn’t returnable.  They are the moments you start to realize how this game can make you feel.  

We’re Tennis Canada, and our hope is that countless Canadians can share those same feelings.  

Specifically, we are committed to the development and growth of our game by stimulating participation and excellence in tennis.  Put another way, we want more people to play and those currently playing to get more out of the game and themselves.(Find out more about our Mission, Vision and Values.

Like the sport itself, we have a long and proud history. One of the largest and longest-operating national sport associations in the country, Tennis Canada was formed in 1890 and is a full member of the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

Tennis Canada is a non-profit, national sport association responsible for leading the growth, promotion and showcasing of tennis in Canada. Tennis Canada owns and operates two of the premier events on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tours; Rogers Cup men’s and women’s events that rotate annually between Rexall Centre in Toronto and Uniprix Stadium in Montreal. In addition, Tennis Canada owns and operates six professional ITF sanctioned events and financially supports six other professional tournaments in Canada.

Tennis Canada operates national training centres at the Centre of Excellence in Toronto and at Uniprix Stadium in Montreal. Tennis Canada is a proud member of the International Tennis Federation, the Canadian Olympic Committee, the Canadian Paralympics Committee and the International Wheelchair Tennis Association, and serves to administer, sponsor and select the teams for Davis Cup, Fed Cup, the Olympic Games and all wheelchair, junior and senior national teams. Tennis Canada invests its surplus into tennis development.
 
Tennis Canada’s Development Team oversees a wide range of initiatives with four strategic directions:  

  1. Community Tennis Development
  2. High Performance Development
  3. Competitive Development
  4. Resource and Partnership Development


Tennis Canada also co-ordinates a myriad of programming and promotional initiatives aimed at stimulating participation and excellence in the sport.  Tennis Canada is also responsible for the Tennis Canada Excellence Awards, the Distinguished Service Awards and the Hall of Fame of Canadian Tennis.

Again, it all comes back to celebrating this great game and its values, while also making it more accessible and more fulfilling to Canadians.  We want you to get as much as you want out of tennis, whether you’re a weekend warrior or representing this country in the world’s premier events.
