Alberta Tennis Centre to Host Billie Jean King Cup Championship Tour

Published On: April 19, 2024

Tennis Canada officially launched the Billie Jean King Cup Champions Tour, a journey that will see the renowned trophy from the international team competition make stops in all 10 provinces across the country. The OSTEN & VICTOR Alberta Tennis Center (ATC) will host the Billie Jean King Cup for a public viewing opportunity on May 15, 2024. This all-day event will be held at our tennis facility as part of our 8th anniversary celebrations with more information being made available in the next week.

The Canadian Women’s Tennis Team, comprised of Leylah Annie Fernandez (Laval, QC), Gabriela Dabrowski (Ottawa, ON), Rebecca Marino (Vancouver, BC), Marina Stakusic (Mississauga, ON), and Eugenie Bouchard (Montreal, QC), made history last November by winning its maiden Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge title after defeating Italy in the 2023 Finals held in Seville, Spain. Canada became the 13th nation to be crowned champions of the Billie Jean King Cup, which was founded in 1963. Attendees will have the opportunity to view and take pictures with the Billie Jean King Cup during its first tour across Canada and during it’s visit to the OSTEN & VICTOR Alberta Tennis Centre. In an effort to empower women and girls during the event, the Game. Set. Match initiative will offer various panels with individuals in tennis and will run tournaments specifically for young girls. In addition, the ATC will host tennis clinics allowing access to a wide range of participants from across Alberta.

“We are very excited to be a part of the Billie Jean King Cup Champions Tour and to celebrate Team Canada’s historic win with the people of Calgary,” says Alberta Tennis Centre CEO, Danny Da Costa. “Our Centre has been a strong advocate and supporter of women’s tennis in Canada and we are looking forward to celebrating this occasion with our members, program participants and the tennis community,” says Alberta Tennis Center CEO, Danny Da Costa.

“Words cannot describe the feeling of pride our team experienced when we lifted the trophy in November. This moment marked history, and we are very excited to celebrate this success with all Canadians. Above all, this title is an unprecedented collective achievement, and we look forward to reliving this special event with as many people as possible as the trophy travels across the country,” says Team Canada Captain Heidi El Tabakh.

Fans will have the opportunity to pose with the trophy first in Calgary on May 15th, 2024 before the trophy heads to Edmonton where tennis aficionados are encouraged to share their photos on social media and use the hashtags #BJKCChamps23 and #CoupeBJKChamps23.
