It was amazing to have two major stars, Daniel Nestor (12 time Grand Slam champion) and Daniel Alfredsson (former Ottawa Senators captain) at the Rideau Sports Centre for the 1stAnnual Double Up For Mental Health event last weekend, in support of The Royal Ottawa Foundation For Mental Health.

A great time was had on and off the court despite the weather, thanks to our state-of-the-art bubble!
What fun it was to celebrate former RTC pro, Dale Power’s birthday at The Bridge Public House as part of the welcome dinner for the event.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to the doubles event and those who supported from afar for a very worthy cause.
