What: The Kruger Products brand is serving up two tennis clinics for youth with Tennis Canada for the 2023 National Bank Open, presented by Rogers.
Kruger will open the Cashmere Tennis Clinic in both Toronto and Montreal, providing an opportunity for up to 50 youth in each city to meet and learn from two professional tennis players.
Five participants at each clinic will have the opportunity to watch a National Bank Open match with their parents or guardians.
Cashmere and Tennis Canada are working directly with local organizations to register participants at both the Toronto and Montreal activations.
"At Kruger Products, our mission to make everyday life more comfortable for Canadians includes our love of sport and the belief that every kid should have access to opportunities that unlock a passion and open new doors," said Susan Irving, CMO of Kruger Products, in a statement. "On our 10th anniversary with the tournament, we're looking back at a great partnership and looking forward to the next generation of tennis fans. We hope that the Cashmere Tennis Clinic can play a part in fostering a new generation's love of sport."
Each clinic will feature two professional tennis players, one former pro and one current pro. In Montreal, participants will get the opportunity to meet current professional tennis player Rebecca Marino (88th in the Women's Tennis Association rankings) and Valérie Tétreault, former professional tennis player and current tournament director of the National Bank Open in Montreal.
In Toronto, the clinic will be supported by current professional tennis player and 2022 Davis Cup champion, Gabriel Diallo (143rd in the Association of Tennis Professionals rankings) and Daniel Nestor, world tennis champion and 2000 Olympic gold medalist.
Cashmere is a national gold partner of the National Bank Open.
