In September 2007, Tennis Canada opened its doors to a full-time National Tennis Centre presented by Rogers (NTC) for the first time.

Under the leadership of world renowned coach Louis Borfiga, who ran a similar program for the French Tennis Federation, identified talent with an average age of 13-19 is provided with the training, coaching and resources necessary to succeed at the top levels of the sport. Operating national training centres is recognized as an international best practice where players can be regrouped in one location to hone their technical, physical and tactical fundamentals, garner top level international competitive experiences, manage life on the junior circuit as a precursor to the professional tours, and develop team identity and values to represent Canada on the international stage.

To ensure the success of the program:

Regional Training Centres

In addition to the National Tennis Centre presented by Rogers in Montreal, three Regional Training Centres have been created in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver to act as regrouping centres for promising U14 talent in those regions. The centres are supplementary training programs designed to support club leaders, personal coaches and parents to enrich the current training and competitive environment for our top performing athletes. These four programs act as feeder systems into the full-time NTC.

Based In Montreal

Many of the Canada’s top players (aged 15-19) live, train and attend school full time here with a goal of becoming a Top 50 WTA/ATP ranked professional.
