It was an amazing month for RSC’s High Performance Tennis Team under the guidance of RSC’s High Performance Coach, Jeremy Gibbens-Schneider.

Orson Vandenbos picked up his first OTA three star title winning the boys Under-12 category. Orson is currently inside the top 50 ranked players in Ontario for his age category. His ranking is forecasted to jump this week when the OTA updates the rankings.

In May, RSC’s High Performance Team had 3 tournament wins in a row:

Ethan Leong won the OTA Hillcrest two star boys Under-16 event.
An all-RSC final with Connor Hickson winning 1st against fellow teammate Ethan Leong who came in 2nd in the boys Under-18 OTA two star event.

June 1-2 weekend the two boys are competing in Caledon in their first men’s open against some of the best players in the country. We wish them good luck in their matches!

Stay tuned for more updates on the RSC High Performance Team!
