Stuart Teather

DSA Award Winner (2023)

Over the last two decades, Stuart has demonstrated what a dedicated and conscientious volunteer looks like to the Toronto community and to tennis in Ontario. 
Stuart joined the Davisville Tennis Club in 2001 and quickly became an integral part of the Davisville tennis community. He joined the board in 2002 as Treasurer, became President in 2004 and has served in that capacity ever since. Davisville is often seen as one of the busiest and most vibrant clubs in Toronto and Stuart’s leadership helps to keep it very successful. He is an exemplary leader and an exceptional event/tournament organizer and community builder. He is frequently called on for advice, and on matters as varied as structuring programming, court maintenance, and club governance. 
For the past 15 years, Stuart has chaired or co-led the organizing committee for Davisville Cup, an annual event that has raised over $165,000 for the Philpott Foundation, fostering junior tennis in economically disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the GTA.  His support of this event is a great example of his commitment to tennis and its development.  It also reflects the priority he places on the culture of Davisville Tennis Club community as a place where all are welcome with tennis at its heart. 
Not one to sit on his laurels, Stuart has also been involved with the InterCounty Tennis Association (ICTA) since 2007. He was Tournament Director for 12 year and has been Vice President since 2018. He is an invaluable member of the ICTA Board and devotes hundreds of hours on a yearly basis to make sure the Association’s work is proper and professional, from working on the Association’s by-laws, to assisting with marketing efforts, to networking with partners and sponsors.  
His peers, colleagues and friends describe him as a hard-working, devoted, genuine, caring and selfless volunteer. Stuart is a true leader and professional, exemplifying the true spirit of this most deserving award.
