Yesterday, I decided to switch things up and head to the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank for an evening filled with sport. This year, Toronto is welcoming some of the best female tennis players from all over the world to the Aviva Cetre at York University organized by Tennis Canada. On until August 16, pick up your tickets online here to help join in on the fun and festivities.
Throughout the tournament, there are a ton of on and off-site activities to do that are great for any age. From sipping cocktails in the Bacardi bar, to indulging your sweet tooth in the freshly made Lindt chocolate and many, many more. There is also a variety of onsite dining and shopping options to pick up something in between the matches. And if you don’t have tickets to the Centre Court, be sure to drop by to watch the pros on the Cynamon Family Practice Courts or stop by and see a match on one of the grounds courts.
Want to get in on all of the fun? Download the Rogers Cup app for up-to-the-minute information on everything that’s happening on the courts and around the Aviva grounds. For a bit of fun, the Fan Passport on the apps brings you around the grounds on a scavenger hunt giving you the chance to win great prizes! The National Bank has also created their own fun and interactive booth on the Aviva grounds giving guests the chance to play games, be a part of the action and win! And lucky for you, the fun doesn’t stop then. Enter to win their #CrazyForTennis Super Fan contest online here. Giving back to their community, the National Bank launched their On The Ball program in 2006 that recovers used tennis balls and transforms them into chair slippers to create better learning conditions for children. By distributing tennis balls to schools and school boards in Quebec and Ontario, the balls are transformed into chair slippers which reduces the distracting noise produced by chairs and increases student concentration. In 2013 alone, 185,000 tennis balls were collected for 143 schools across six school boards. More than one million tennis balls have been collected to date.
