Hi there, my name is Asher Kandathil, and I’ve been playing tennis since the age of 4. Over the course of 10 years, I played tennis internationally and won tournaments in India, Canada, and Spain. I also competed in many ITF tournaments, achieving a career high rank of 12. In Spain, I ranked 50th in the under 18 category, and my highest UTR was 11. Along the way, I won 4 national level tournaments in Spain. I’m passionate about tennis and willing to work on anything to continue improving my skills. In addition to tennis, I enjoy playing cricket, soccer, volleyball, badminton, and various other sports. I am looking forward to seeing you on the court.
I’m Ethan Leong, a 20-year-old tennis player and I have over 6 years of coaching experience as a TPA certified tennis coach, teaching all ages and levels from beginners to high level performance. Competing at a high level and learning from ATP certified coach Heath Waters and NCAA D1 player Jeremy Gibbons-Schneider has given me great knowledge of the game. I started playing tennis when I was just 3 years old and have been playing competitively since I was 9. Over the years, I have won countless tournaments in the city and in places such as Toronto from the junior to men’s level. I started coaching voluntarily when I was just 13 and have been providing my knowledge of the sport to the Ottawa’s tennis community ever since. I have taught at several locations throughout the city. My journey to become the best tennis player I can be is ongoing, and I’m excited to see where it takes me.

Outside of tennis, I also enjoy exploring new destinations and immersing myself in the great outdoors. I can’t wait to meet all of you and share in the joy of tennis together!
