Dawn’s Story: Finding High Performance Tennis Development

Dawn organizes the Singles League at the UBC Tennis Centre. She has also participated in our Adult High Performance Clinic to develop her game. She loves the Singles League because it provides a friendly yet competitive environment that focuses on growth and development in to high performance players.

“I’ve had the ability to develop and grow my game on-court, and I’ve met people which have developed into great friendships that will last a lifetime.” – Dawn

Can you tell us about the Singles League at the UBC Tennis Centre?

Dawn: The singles league is a ladder format with about 70 players. It gives players the opportunity to come in and work on their game in a safe competitive environment and to move up or down depending on how their game is performing at that particular time. It’s a great opportunity to get on court and to get that competitive match experience without being in the pressure of an actual tournament environment. We have players with varying levels from 3.0 to 5.0.

Why do you think the Singles League has seen such growth?

Dawn: I think that it is definitely the community feeling. We have a social after each session of the leagues that we bring everybody together who wants to come. We have drinks and some appetizers so people can just talk and get to know each other better. The league offers the ability to develop and grow my game on court, to meet people, and make great friendships that last a lifetime.
