Yes, that PARTICIPACTION. If you’re at least my age then you likely remember the commercials with Hal and Joanne on public access television.
Well, PARTICIPACTION is back with a community challenge for us here in Brant County. Fortunately for them, with tennis players on their team we’ve got his competition in the bag! As you can see below, Competitive Night Tennis last night, along with coaching our great kids has me surpassed the WEEKLY GOAL.
Multiply that by the 19 Players we had last night (9 kids and 10 adults) and I’d say we can take on any community 🙂
The challenge starts on Friday, May 31st, so login at the website and/or get the app and join me in testing the limits of what their tracking system can handle and let’s show these community challengers how we really move!

My name is Sarah Deck, and I am a PhD student at Western University. I am studying emotions and coping in athletes, specifically double racquet sport athletes. I have two studies, that you, and hopefully members of your club would be interested in participating in. We (myself and my supervisor Dr. Hall) are curious about the impact of partnerships on emotional responses of athletes. For example, if emotional responses become similar over a season. One of the studies would take place over your next competative season, and involves meeting with the athletes three times (beginning, middle and end of season), at a time that would work best for them. The partners do need to agree and participant together. The second study, is an online survey, that takes 5-10 minutes to fill out, and asks athletes about their emotional regulation when playing with their doubles partners. If you are interested and would like to know or discuss more, I would be happy to send you the letter of information or set up a call or meeting. I think this research would be very helpful for athletes, and would love if you and your members would like to be involved!
Below is the link to the online survey, we would be happy if you could forward this to your members or any contacts you may have that would be interested.
Late registrants will be offered pro-rated lesson rates for lessons remaining, based on coaching and court availability. Once the session have been filled, registration will be closed until the summer sessions.
