U SPORTS, Tennis Canada collaborate to add tennis to U SPORTS programming


U SPORTS and Tennis Canada are working together to add tennis to U SPORTS programming. Tennis has become U SPORTS’ first Pilot Sport (P3), and through the pilot program, student athletes will gain additional higher-level competition opportunities within Canada’s postsecondary system. Tennis Canada will work with U SPORTS throughout 2024 with the aim of helping the sport move up to a P1 subcategory on the Partnership Sports Scale, which will allow it to progress to the Core National Championship Sports category. “Together with Tennis Canada and our members, we look forward to serving as a catalyst in the development of top-tier talent in Canada and promoting the values of excellence and equity within our university communities,” said U SPORTS Chief Sport Officer Lisette Johnson-Stapley.
