Smashing reviews for new state-of-the art tennis centre in Calgary

06-08-2016

After a decade-long process, the Osten and Victor Alberta Tennis Centre is open in Calgary. The 13-court facility will redefine the standard for major tennis facilities across Canada.

"When you see all these wonderful kids out on the court playing, that's what it's all about. It's open to the public, it's non-profit, it's a facility that will be great for Calgarians for generations to come."

Kevin Smith reports from Global News http://globalnews.ca/news/2749662/smashing-reviews-for-new-state-of-the-art-tennis-centre-in-calgary/?sf28262126=1

?Tennis is now the fastest growing of the traditional sports in Canada,? said board vice-chair Glen Scott, who is also past president of Tennis Alberta.

?We want to make this the most technologically enabled tennis centre in North America and my personal opinion is it will be housing the best young players in the west. But equally as important, we want to give Albertans a place to play.?

Testimonials

What we’re trying to do is build high-end quality programs. We’ve studied all the best programs, not only in the country but internationally, to develop best practices, looking at what they do that distinguishes their programs and helps to produce players. 

One of the things we’ll be putting here eventually is technology – cameras on the court, advanced analytics, break down video. That’s a real game changer. A lot of coaching has always been with a basket of balls – very traditional. Now we can do something that’s pretty unique.

Danny Da Costa, General Manager

Stefano Roganti
