Allan Tse, General Manager of Toronto Tennis City located in the Davisville area of Toronto, announced two new initiatives which will provide competitive and training opportunities on the brand new Red Clay courts. The surface imported from Italy lives up to the reputation of playing much slower than traditional American Har-Tru.
The two preparation training camps are offered to provide training opportunities for youngsters playing the Canadian Nationals in Mont Tremblant, QC. Pierre Lamarche, Owner of Toronto Tennis City: “We feel it is our responsibility to share our courts with youngsters preparing for the Nationals. Many players have the opportunity to train on the clay, but others do not.” The camps will provide training and competitive situations with no technical feedback. Lamarche added, “We hope that other coaches come with their players and provide a real feeling of cooperation”.
Tse also added that the club will host 3 OTA sanctioned events in August and will conclude the summer season with the 5th Annual City of Toronto Tennis Championships in late August. The $5000 Mens Open event will be sponsored by Greenwin Inc.; the $2000 Womens Open by Toronto Tennis City; the Mens Over 35 by ONcourt Ezine and the 11 junior events by ACE Tennis and Tennex Systems Inc.
Toronto Tennis City is located at 185 Balliol St, near the Davisville subway station.
