Kenneth Sinclair

DSA Award Winner (2003)

Ken was instrumental in building and negotiating a long term lease with York University on behalf of the Ontario Tennis Association and Tennis Canada for the National Tennis Centre in order to further junior tennis development in Canada and to accomodate the growing popularity of the Canadian Open. He also initiated the Jarry Park Tennis facility in Montreal in cooperation with Imasco and was instrumental in negotiating the original Canadian Open sponsorship contracts with Imasco.

He has served as chairman of many OTA events in past 35 years and was chairman of the Canadian Open for 12 years. He also had a distinguished tennis career as a player. He won the World Over 70 singles championship in 2002 and with partner Lorne Main won the 2002 Over 70 doubles. Over their senior careers, this twosome has won more international championships for Canada than any other competitors in any sport.

As a tennis entrepreneur, Ken established the Timberlane Athletic Club in Aurora, the site of numerous provincial, national, and international tennis events and erected the first tennis "bubble" in Canada, located at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.
