Yonex is one of the top selling tennis brands in Canada. Whether it’s a racquet from the VCORE, VCORE Pro, EZONE, Astrel or Junior series’, players can count on great performance, sensation and durability. Yonex prides itself on being innovators of the latest and greatest tennis technologies and are committed to pushing the limits of what is possible on court. Yonex racquets and strings are manufactured in the company’s own factories, ensuring a consistently high quality across the entire range of scientifically engineered equipment. As a result, players will never have to worry about tension, durability and feel.

Top ATP and WTA players who use Yonex racquets include Stan Wawrinka, Naomi Osaka, Nick Kyrgios, Angelique Kerber and Canada’s own Denis Shapovalov.

Executive Director of the OTA Jim Boyce commented: “The OTA is pleased to be a partner with Yonex Canada and welcome them as the Official Racquet and String of the organization. Yonex produce premium quality racquets and strings with excellent playability and resilience. We look forward to promoting the benefits of playing with any of the quality Yonex frames and strings to the OTA tennis community”. 

“We are very happy and excited to be partnering with the largest Provincial Tennis Association in Canada. The exclusive Yonex ISOMETRIC head shape found on its racquets is a unique breakthrough in racquet design, and we are committed to the constant development of products with cutting edge technology to give you the winning advantage.
