U10 Team Championships Results

It was an exciting weekend of tennis at the 2019 Aviva U10 Team Championships Presented by the OTA & Tennis Canada last weekend at the Aviva Tennis Centre in Toronto. There was a total of 28 teams that participated over the 3-day event, with a total of 402 matches played at a very high level. A big thank you to all players, coaches and parents for their hard work, effort and team spirit throughout the event.

Throughout the event, officials, coaches and tournament staff were nominating players and teams who showed exemplary sportsmanship in their matches and awarded one boys’ and girls’ team with a $200 gift card to Ultimate Dining to enjoy a night out with their team members. This year, the boys team who won the award was the Pickering Little Ace team (Marc Vasilianu, Thomas Vasilianu, Hugo Trent and Zray Golwala) and the girls team who took home the award was Advantage Tennis International (left to right above, coach Bobby Mahal, Tessa Puente, Angelina Chacko, Noelle Dai and Zadie Biss-Mantziounis).

For the first time in the history of the Team Championships, teams were invited from across the country. This year, Tennis 13 from Laval, Quebec (left to right above, coach Nicolas Kwan,  Elisabeth Djabourian, Neva Robitaille, Viviane Jodoin and Maeva Menard) joined the event and had a great time. Through their hard work, they won the Girls Consolation flight.

The same could be said for the boys’ consolation champions who persevered through a tough few days of matches and through their hard work, Toronto Tennis City (left to right above, Oscar Taylor, coach Adam Dykes, George Rawlinson, Noah Rizvi, Luke Basiji and Morgan Lee) won the Boys Consolation flight.

In the boys’ championship round, Tennis by Dennis took on Ontario Racquet Club Boys #1 and after a tight, tough tie, Tennis by Dennis won the Championship! (Tennis by Denis team participants from left to right above, Luka Kostic, Brayden Cerny, coach Dennis Dobrovolsky, Timofey Dobrovolsky and Praneeth Pichika).

In the girls’ championship round, Ontario Racquet Club Girls #1 took on Ottawa Athletic Club and after some great tennis, Ontario Racquet Club took home the girl’s title. (The Ontario Racquet Club team participants from left to right above, coach Kyle Rutherford,  Anvika Saraswathi, Isabella Bawa, Lily Rochon and Selin Vakalapudi).

Overall, it was a fantastic weekend of tennis! On top of the Canadian Davis Cup action, the future of Canadian Tennis is very bright, and we should all be proud! We hope everyone had a wonderful time and we hope to grow this event even more in the future! See you next year!
