Ottawa tennis community to host the ITF Masters 100: 

OTTAWA, ON, 2024 – The Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC), Tennis Centre West Ottawa (TCWO), and the National Capital Tennis Association (NCTA) are excited to announce they will be hosting an ITF Masters 100 event in Ottawa from June 27th to July 1st, 2024. 

The NCTA has partnered with Tennis Canada to host this international tournament in the nation’s capital, with matches played on the clay courts at both the OTLBC and TCWO. The tournament will feature women’s and men’s singles and doubles, in age categories ranging from 30 to over 80.

 “Ottawa area players usually have to travel to play in an ITF Masters event, so this is a great opportunity. We’re hoping for a high level of participation, because if at least 100 players register this year, it will be possible to raise the level of the event to 200 or more in the future,” said Eamonn Gary, President of the NCTA.

Players can register for one singles and one doubles event, or two doubles events. The singles event provides a guarantee of two matches, and the doubles event does not feature a consolation round. Event details are posted on the ITF website Players can register for the ITF Masters 100 Ottawa on the IPIN website, with registration closing on June 18, 2024.

Tournament organizers are seeking volunteers and sponsorships to support the event. Those interested can register their intent by contacting Beth Everson at

“Attracting such great events to the Nation’s capital is a must. In addition, the long-term benefits to the sport of tennis in Ottawa afforded by such competitions is critical. We hope that this event will be a much needed injection of excitement and publicity for tennis in the National Capital region, and a great way for the tennis community as a whole to enjoy and celebrate this fantastic sport.” said Mike Tait, OTLBC ED

“The fact that this tournament is being brought to our city is very exciting for our tennis community here in Ottawa”, said Kate Holzhuter, TCWO Manager. “Tennis Centre West Ottawa is proud to co-host such a great event alongside our friends at the OTLBC, and we can’t wait for the thrilling match play, fun and camaraderie to get underway.”
