Message from Bill Cowan, Director
Dear parents and athletes
Players Edge is very excited to announce that the Academy is relocating its Program to the Astra Tennis Club. Conveniently located just east of Vaughan Mills Mall (2839 Rutherford Road), the club features 4 indoor hard courts, bar and grill, and fitness areas for yoga, pilates and fitness. Courts for private lessons and practice matches will be available for rent - at all times during the day - not just late evening hours. There is also a ball machine available for rent!
About Our Programs
Bill Cowan has taken on the role as head pro - overseeing both the high performance Academy and the recreational programs (both adult and children). Information about the club can be found at www.astratennisclub.com
Importantly, Players Edge is excited to expand our 1/2 court and 3/4 court programs. Programs start the week of Nov. 5.
Access to indoor courts year-round will allow us to schedule exciting March break and summer camps!
- The Provincial/National Squad is targeted for players able to qualify for the Provincial Championships and/or National Championships by next summer. Grouping is determined through competitive situational games in a top-of-the-court format. Athletes registering for our Provincial Squads must be prepared to commit to a minimum of 2 days per week. Mondays to Thursdays 7-10 pm.
- Our Easy Play (green dot) program is targeted to the development of u10 competitive players and is available on Friday and Wednesday from 7-9 pm.
- Our ¾ court program focus is on consolidating the development of stroke fundamentals (grips, set up, rhythm, impact, hitting zone, recovery).
- Our half-court program is offered in a one or two hour class. This program is specifically for tennis players 4-8 years of age. Mondays from 6-8pm, Wednesdays from 6-7pm, and Saturdays from 10-11am
We are pleased to partner with Dennis Lindsay for extra fitness programs in the gym at the Rexall Center.
