2020 Canadian Senior Tennis Schedule


2020 Canadian Senior Tennis Schedule

2020 Steve Stevens Senior Nationals
We are excited to announce that after a three-year absence, we are returning to Vancouver and Victoria for the Steve Stevens Senior NationalsAugust 23-39. We are again delighted to be hosted by the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club, Jericho Tennis Club, Richmond Country Club, the Arbutus Club and new this year, the Bear Mountain Resort on Vancouver Island. Historically the tournament takes place in one city; however, with increasing participation, it has become more and more difficult to host the event in one city.  With the goal of providing the best possible experience for all our players, we know you will not be disappointed.  Players staying in Vancouver will relish the quintessential West Coast experience …shops, restaurants, the spectacular sights, and those staying at Bear Mountain will enjoy the amenities and pampering of a 5-star extraordinary resort including 8 clay courts and 2 golf courses at your doorstep …not to mention the lure of beautiful Victoria, a stone’s throw away. Further details will be announced in the new year.

OTA Instagram Beloved Canadian tennis star Bruno Agostinelli Jr. passed away tragically in 2016 at the age of 28. His younger brother Gianluca lovingly remembers his brother in this tribute story. Gianluca tells us about Bruno’s wonderful accomplishments as a junior, college and Davis Cup star and about how he inspired the next generation as an elite coach at Tennis Canada. But, more than that, he shares what it meant to be Bruno’s brother and how he was inspired by Bruno in tennis and in life… and still is. After stepping away from the sport, Gianluca was drawn back to it as a way of coming to terms with Bruno’s passing and to feel close to him once again. Read about Bruno’s incredible legacy:
