OTA Southwest Region Symposium
The first-ever OTA Southwest Region Tennis Symposium was held last weekend at the Cedar Springs Health, Racquet and Sports Club in Burlington. Over 80 attendees took part in the event on Saturday, including representatives from over 25 OTA-member clubs and Academies as well as Tennis professionals from the region and other guests.
The morning began with a continental breakfast and the Southwest Region AGM. This was followed by a couple of inspiring Davis and Billie Jean King Cup Team Canada videos and breakout sessions for the club leaders which resulted in lively, thought-provoking conversations about club and regional issues, possible solutions and best practices and potential plans moving forward. Thanks to Nathalie Early for framing and organizing these great discussions!
After a fine lunch catered by the Cedar Springs F & B team and a networking opportunity, the delegates were treated to several presentations from Tennis Canada staff and team members, including the following:
- Journey to the Davis Cup (Team Canada Chiropractor, Dr. Taran Ohson)
- Competition Services (Arun Nath, Ayesha Patel and Cameron Coulter, Tennis Canada)
- Safe Sport (Sarah Chan, Tennis Canada)
- Rogers First Set (Isabella Baston, Tennis Canada)
