The Assisting Team
Assistant Pro - James Seeraj
As a young athlete, I excelled in competitive soccer and hockey, but it was at the age of 10 when I discovered my true passion: tennis. Under the tutelage of coaches like Alastair Miller, Andres Marco, and Casey Curtis, I honed my skills and developed a deep understanding of the game. I was committed to my training, dedicating around 20 hours a week to practicing and competing, and travelled across Canada and to Mexico to compete in tournaments. Through hard work and determination, I achieved a personal best Universal Tennis Ranking of 10.53, as well as a Canadian Ontario Junior ranking of 28th, and a Canadian National Junior ranking of 71st.
While pursuing a Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies at the University of Western Ontario, I was drawn to the school’s exceptional tennis program. Competing on the team has been a highlight of my university experience, and I’ve enjoyed practicing and playing alongside my fellow athletes.
My experience as a competitive tennis player has taught me the importance of dedication, teamwork, and perseverance, qualities that I strive to bring to any endeavor. With a deep understanding of the sport and a passion for teaching and coaching, I am excited to help others develop their skills and achieve their tennis

Private and semi-private lessons
To make big strides forward in your overall tennis abilities, getting professional coaching is certainly a good idea.
Everyone can get better and even the top ranked players in the world constantly try to incorporate new shots, new strategies, better movement, increased fitness, more concentrated focus, improved technique, etc. into what they do. Learning how to hit the ball properly and how to move on the court can also help to reduce injury and extend your time on the court. Please contact our head pro Brian Ahlberg to schedule your next private or semi private lessons. These lessons are available to our members ONLY.
