All over Canada, community tennis courts and clubs are preparing to open. Players of all ages and abilities are eager to return to the game they know and love, but if you’re new to the game, there’s never been a better time to give it a try.
Canadians have caught the tennis “bug” like never before! More of us are watching our star players; more of us are cheering from the stands; and more of us are picking up our racquets. We’re enrolling our kids in lessons and camps, we’re teaching our kids a few tennis basics, and many of us (myself included!) have returned to the game we loved as kids.
Who will you share your love of the game with and invite to join you on the courts this spring? Some friends? Your kids? A neighbour? A colleague from work? In doing so, you’ll not only grow your own tennis community, you’ll be a hero, putting others on the path to increased health, happiness, and fun!
