Glen Cairn Tennis Club, 70 Castlefrank Rd., Kanata, ON
The 18th Kunstadt Open Tennis Tournament has started. Increasingly, our tournaments attract elite Canadian tennis players. We were lucky to get Nicolas Vincent to participate. Nic is the # 1 player at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville tennis team in NCAA Division 1. Zhenia Kondratovsky, our No. 2 seed is a past junior champion of Russia. He has played in every Kunstadt Open Tournament. He is the head teaching pro at Rideau Tennis Club. Our 3-rd seeded player is James Ferguson, the teaching pro at West Ottawa Tennis Club and current city Over 35 champion. Jeremy Gibbens-Schneider, the 4-th seed and one of the top juniors in the region, has just signed with the tennis team at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Watch for Jon Landon, an ex-Argonauts football player. If you’re lucky, you may see his Grey Cup ring. He is playing tonight at 5 pm at the Glen Cairn Tennis Club.
