2017 Future Stars Fair Play Award

The Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) is pleased to announce the Fair Play Award program for the Future Stars Circuit (U9 & U10).  Each month, one player will be selected by the OTA staff as the Fair Play recipient for the Future Stars Circuit based on his/her exemplary conduct during the Future Stars Circuit tournaments.

Selection Process:

Each month, the OTA will ask host Tournament Directors to nominate a competitor who has participated in a Future Stars Circuit event.  Tournament Directors may nominate as many players as they wish.  At the end of each month, the Player Development staff will review all submissions and select one player as the Fair Play recipient of the month. 

Tournament Directors will be asked to select nominees based on the following criteria:

  • Outstanding sportsmanship during matches
    • Applauding your opponent’s good shots
    • Calling out the score when serving
    • Shaking your opponents hand after the match
    • Maintaining your composure during matches: avoid emotional outbursts
  • Making accurate and fair line calls
  • Ability to manage your scores (avoid scoring disputes)
  • Avoiding code violations

 

Only one individual from all Future Stars Circuit events (GTA & Ottawa; U9 & U10; boys and girls) will be selected each month.

Each winner will be awarded a Cineplex gift certificate for two!

Best of luck during the 2017 Future Stars Circuit!
