I was born and raised on the small island of St.Lucia in the Caribbean. I started playing tennis at the age of 5, my father is also a tennis professional, and grew up in what is currently the Sandals Regency La Toc Resort in St.Lucia. My Dad was the hotel tennis pro and we lived in one of the villas for 10 years. As I improved, I travelled far and wide to play tournaments. At 15, I left St.Lucia for good to train at the prestigious Saddlebrook Academy in Florida, training ground for Pete Sampras (former #1 in the world) and Jennifer Capriati (former #1 in the world), for my last 2 years of high school. From there I received a tennis scholarship to the University of Louisville where I received a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering. After travelling for a year, I made my final stop in Whitby, Ontario in 2001 where I still call home today.
From 1996 to 2005, I represented the Eastern Caribbean and St. Lucia in the Davis Cup I am now the current Head Pro of the Oshawa Tennis Club and a certified Club Pro 1 with Tennis Canada.
Personally I am now a husband and father of 3 children, 6, 5 and 3, who are all starting to participate in the sport I love, which has been my life from the age of 5. Through tennis I have travelled to many countries and islands, and I wish that opportunity on any junior, or senior, who picks up a racquet to learn the game. I consider myself truly lucky having this sport in my life.
Enjoy the game!
Thank you to everyone who came out this summer to play at Mary St., the Brookside courts, and other locations. OTC has obtained the use of one court at the Oshawa Civic Dome for club play from October 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018.
Please make sure that you purchase the OTC membership and get a membership card from Kane. Please be prepared to show this card anytime you are playing at the Dome.
The OTC executive continues to pursue opportunities for finding a permanent home. Until then, we continue to operate as a seasonal club, with summer operations primarily at the Mary St. courts, and winter operations at the Oshawa Civic Dome.
