About "The Champions":
 
“The Champions” is the brain child of Mr. Murray Rubin, a life-long tennis enthusiast and member of the York Racquets Club in Toronto. Mr. Rubin has donated over $60,000 to “The Champions”, to be used to pay for the one-on-one coaching of the young winners and finalists - $20,000 per year, payable over a two year period. Rubin approached the OTA with the idea and, together with the staff, created the event. Mr. Rubin is a long time supporter of tennis in Canada and Ontario whose “goal is to help produce a Canadian world champion”. The OTA shares in his belief that; “in order to produce a great player, you must offer extensive coaching and start players at a young age”.  Forest Hill Real Estate and Scotiabank have also generously donated to this year’s event. The OTA will administer the tournament and the coaching dollars offered. 
 
Player Training Grants:
 
a. The boys’ singles champion and the girls’ singles champion will each be awarded a total of $6000 over 2 years.  The boys’ singles finalist and the girls’ singles finalist will each be awarded a total of $4000 over 2 years.  
 
b. All grants must be accessed by the players’ personal coach through the OTA and be specific to private coaching.  The players’ private coach must be approved by the OTA in order to receive the training grant.
