Tennis BC is pleased to announce the return of the Junior G3 ITF event along with a new event partner – Davis Trading & Supply Ltd., as part of the 86th Leith Wheeler Stanley Park Open. The event is scheduled to run from July 3 and July 8th, 2017.

Tennis BC would like to also thank our previous partner, Silex Canada, for the support it has provided the BC Junior High Performance tour over the last two years. Their support has made it possible for Tennis BC to upgrade the previous G4 ITF to a G3 in 2016.

The Davis Trading Junior ITF Vancouver Tennis Championships features boys and girls singles and doubles competitions. Entry Deadline is June 6, 2017. All players eligible to participate are invited to sign up through the ITF website, please see the link here.

NEW for 2017 – Player hosting & accommodations
ITF events play a critical part in the development of high performance players. To host Junior G3 ITF events, the ITF requires the tournament hosts to provide housing for all main draw players as long as they are still part of the event. The ITF recognizes that this is a large expense for tournament hosts and has changed its policy around player hosting. New for 2017, the ITF is allowing tournament hosts to find family housing for main draw players. We are kindly asking for your help.

If you are able to welcome and host touring players during the tournament, please contact Sarah Kadi at skadi@tennisbc.org

Gabe Davis – President, Davis Trading & Supply
Growing up playing tennis and training at the Richmond Country Club as a junior, Gabe obtained a tennis scholarship in the US, playing Division 1 tennis at the University of Hawaii and University of San Francisco respectively. Through the disciplined work ethic instilled from years of tennis training, Gabe was able to pave the course of his career beyond the court, and this ultimately was a defining influence on his character. Gabe wants to give back to the tennis community and young up-and-coming players, to provide them with an opportunity that can hopefully propel them forward in both their tennis and academic journeys. We are proud to welcome Gabe and Davis Trading as a Tennis BC partner this season.
