Hi everyone, my name is Rishi Laird! I am happy to be the Camp Director at the club this year. I will be heading into my second year of University in the fall studying biochemistry. I have been a member of the Kingston Tennis Club since I was young, and have enjoyed being a camper, volunteer as well as camp counsellor over the years. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, hockey and golf. I look forward to meeting everyone and having an amazing season with our lovely new clubhouse!

Staff Instructor, Tony Roth

Tony has been involved in tennis since the age of nine, when his family moved to Kingston and he discovered the KTC. This led to a journey that spanned through provincial, national and varsity levels as a player, and has included coaching and program development in diverse roles, from club pro to national touring coach. While completing an M.A. in Philosophy at Queen's, and achieving the Coach IV level of certification with Tennis Canada, Tony published his book Noble Tennis: The Wisdom of Sport. This led to the creation of the Noble Tennis School, which has developed a distinctive culture, pathways, program protocols and methodology over the past twenty years. In 2021 Tony returned to where it all started, the KTC. He is working with the board, staff and members to enhance existing programs and create new ones, for the benefit of both junior and adult members. Tony oversees all the NTS programming at the Club, and runs some of the classes himself. He is also available for private instruction on a limited basis.
