Tennis fundraising gala this weekend will support players

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

All-Canadian Experience Tennis will be serving up an evening to remember on February 4.

The organization, formerly operated under the name All-Canadian Tennis, is gearing up for its 30th anniversary reunion/fundraiser.

The event aims to regroup friends of tennis to support promising Canadian players.

Olympic Gold Medal Champion and previous #1 doubles player in the world, Daniel Nestor, will lead a series of exhibitions between the stars of yesteryears (Andrew Sznajder, Chris Pridham and others) and Canada's emerging new stars (Katy Shulaeva, Sharon Fichman and others).

Supported by Tennis Canada and the Ontario Tennis Association, the event will serve as a fundraiser to provide assistance for top Canadian players requiring financial support with training, traveling and coaching costs.

The festivities kick off at the Cedar Springs Health, Racquet & Sports Club in Burlington at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $150 each (tax receipt for $100).

In addition to the exhibition matches, there will be refreshments, finger food, a silent auction and a "Texas Hold'em Poker" tournament.

Over the past 30 years, All-Canadian has been home to over 2,000 youngsters.

Started in Burlington in 1976, the program moved to the Ontario Racquet Club in Mississauga, before settling in London, Ontario with satellite programs in Sudbury and Brantford.

The program eventually operated for years out of the National Tennis Centre at York University before returning to Burlington in 1999.

All-Canadian has been the training base for players who have won over 200 National Championships and for more than 200 players who have gone on to receive U.S. tennis scholarships.

"The great gift of coaching these kids over the years, is to see how successful they have become in their adult lives," said Pierre Lamarche, the former Davis Cup and Fed Cup captain and director of ace tennis. "Getting them to come back and support the next wave of Canadian tennis stars shows their appreciation and their class...they are all champions."

Tickets are available by calling Lamarche at 905-467-6970, or by e-mailing plamarche@ cogeco.net.
