Marie & Kevin - ACTC Hi Performance Program Champions

Marie and Kevin are two players that call ACTC home. They are students in Andres Marco's Hi-Performance Junior Program.  

Marie tells me that she has trained at many clubs across Toronto but for her, "ACTC is my home training court" and Andres Marco is the best coach in Canada". Maria Patrascu is currently ranked #14 in Canada and #1070 WTA, Maria won the singles and doubles championship in the $10,000 106th Alberta Open. Kevin Portmann made the doubles final in the same tournament. Kevin is ranked  #249 in Italy and #132 in Canada. 

The picture below was taken after Andres donated 2 hours of coaching to the ACTC 55 Plus team as they prepare for the ICTA 55 Plus Championship at the Aviva Tennis Centre at York University. 

What a plus it is to have players like Maria and Kevin at ACTC and a world class professional in Andres Marco coaching our Hi-Performance Junior Program. 



High School Students at ACTC

Our local High School, Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School has requested court time this fall so their students could be introduced to tennis. Two of our courts are often empty in the afternoon so we agreed to allow students to play during program time on the condition that if members arrive they may need to move to other community courts in the area. 

ACTC no longer provides children's tennis programs. We stopped our summer children's tennis program because the Newmarket Tennis Club, the Marilyn Redvers Tennis Center and the Town's Fleury Park children's tennis program are meeting the needs of the community for introductory tennis. We are pleased that at ACTC we continue to support introductory  tennis opportunities for young people. . 

      

Inter County Tennis Association - Human Rights Tribunal Ruling

The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal has ruled against the Inter County Tennis Association in  respect to the number of women allowed to play matches on the Mixed Teams. 

The ACTC Board delegated a representative to the August 1st meeting of the ICTA. She has reported that  members voted to file a request for reconsideration and an appeal to the Tribunal's decision by a margin of 50-12. There was a further vote to retain the same legal council as had handled the original case. 

Please read the ICTA background information presented below. The full decision of the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal can be viewed on our website here

The ACTC Board will be sending out a survey to all members to indicate our club's collective view. Please note, a survey is not a referendum - the Board of Directors will make the final decision on this matter after consultation with membership and other ICTA member clubs. 

Tennis a game for life
