We are very proud of our competent ROTC Club Pros, Niels and Steven. Both are certified instructors with Tennis Canada.
We are also delighted that both young men and their families have been long-term members of the club which should inspire some of our junior members!
From the age of 5, Niels has won multiple awards for his performance. He began competing at the provincial and national levels at the age of 10; at age 12, he was competing at an international level. He was invited to join the Tennis Quebec team where he remained for 8 years. He also joined the Tennis Canada team where he remained for 6 years. During this time, he traveled across the world and held a top 3 position in the country for years.
Niels is currently on an NCAA tennis scholarship at Monmouth University in New Jersey where he studies Business. He plays position 1 on his team and already holds some of the University’s tennis records. He was named player of the week twice this past semester and he is excited for a new season at the ROTC to welcome back current and new players.
Steven is currently studying Engineering at McGill University and is the captain of the McGill Tennis Team. Steven first played tennis at age 5 and joined the Royal Oak Tennis Club a few years later in 2009. He has competed in provincial and national tournaments and spent most of his junior career within the top 30 players in Quebec. Steven has been coaching tennis since 2016 and enjoys working with kids and adults alike. Steven is always up to date about the tennis world and shares his enthusiasm with his students, and looking forward to seeing them once again this season.
A competitive tennis singles ladder is a popular activity.
We have two interclub ladies’
teams at the Royal Oak!
Watch for the Club Championships,
