            Hotels:

            Two hotels are available on the championship website.  Click on Venues/Hotels and then click on Accommadations

            All of the hotels are located within 20 minutes from all two tournament sites.

            We will be using the Delta Toronto East hotel as our host hotel.

            NOTE - If you try and book at either hotel and the booking has filled up, please E-mail Shawn Morris (shawn.morris@yrdsb.ca) and I will contact the hotel and increase our group booking.

             

            Additional Information:

            1. Participation T-shirts

            -Every athlete this year will receive an Under Armour participation T-shirt.  We have both Men's and Women's sizes. 

            Please enter your athletes preferences in the same place that you have attached your Online Entry Forms (above)

            This will ensure that they receive the correct T-Shirt in their registration packages.  

            2. Bring your school tents

            Since we are at the University of Toronto, there is not much shade so it is a good idea to bring a tent with you for shade.  There is plenty of green space to put up all the team tents adjacent to the Tennis Courts.  If your matches are at either Mayfair location, you will be indoors for the first two days and don’t need to worry about a tent.

            3. Tennis Canada APP

            -OFSAA Tennis scores, schedule and results will be run through the OTA and Tennis Canada this year.  I suggest you download the Tennis Canada tournament app for all your coaches and athletes as all the results will be posted online through this app.  If you have trouble with the app, the link is below.

            Tournament link will be updated closer to the event.

            4. Twitter

            -All results will be posted on Twitter: @ofsaatennis

            -We (YRAA) have used Twitter in the past for OFSAA tennis and found it was an excellent way to communicate results between the three different sites as well as to all the schools around the province.

            If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me via E-mail leading up to the tournament and during the tournament, you can contact me via cell phone or E-mail.
