Distinguished Service Awards Nominations

Any two citizens of Canada who have reached the age of majority can recommend individuals, companies, associations, municipal parks and recreation groups, and private or community clubs/venues. The awards are presented in conjunction with the provincial association at a suitable event in the province.

Who is eligible?

The DSAs are awarded to people, associations and/or companies who have made a valuable long-term contribution to our sport in Canada. Without them, our country wouldn’t be where it is today – taking its place as a world-leading tennis nation. We urge you to submit a nomination.

Given the great challenges tennis in Canada has faced due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to also honour those that have truly made a difference during these uncertain times. Please consider those individuals who may often be overlooked, but over the last year have played a crucial role in keeping our sport afloat in your communities.

To be considered for the award, the candidate must have a record of involvement (minimum five years) at the national, provincial or community level in one of the following areas:
