Raonic Fundraiser for Liam Draxl

$5,300 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 20 days
Created May 6, 2019
We are so proud to have been part of the development of Canada's greatest Singles Tennis Player, Milos Raonic.  Milos trained throughout his childhood at Blackmore Tennis Club.  He is a wonderful ambassador for Canadian tennis and has made a significant contribution both directly and indirectly to the wave of success we are currently enjoying throughout the country. 

One of those success stories can be found at our Newmarket Winter Tennis Club.  Liam Draxl, currently the 11th ranked junior in the world, is now ranked on the Men’s ATP Tour.  In keeping with our family based approach to all of our clubs, Milos is running a fundraiser at Marilyn Redvers Tennis Centre to support Liam’s budding tennis career.  As you can probably appreciate, players new to the tour are faced with a number of expenses while receiving little revenue.

We are honoured to be a part of Milos’ fundraising efforts for Liam.  Thank you in advance for your support, it’s greatly appreciated.

Event Details:

Milos, Liam,  and our coaching staff will be running drills and games for all registered players.

Date: May 12, 2019

Time: 10:00 - 11:00 am: Recreation Level (Ages 6 - 13)
             11:00 am - 12:00 pm: High Performance Level  (Ages 10 and up)

Location: Marilyn Redvers Tennis Centre

Participation Fee:  a minimum donation of $25

We have added Liam's father, Brian Draxl, as a beneficiary.  Both Brian, and Liam's mother, Alison, have been instrumental in Liam's development.  They have spent countless hours traveling with Liam and on court with him.  Brian and Alison are so grateful for your support as your donations will go directly toward paying for Liam's tennis expenses.

Hello Everyone,

Liam's parents would like to share the following message with you...

Thank you to everyone who came out to support Liam this past weekend at MRTC’s “Raonic Fundraiser for Liam”! Liam and Milos genuinely enjoyed spending time on court with the kids (doing drills that they likely both did themselves in their younger years!). To the parents and members who donated so generously, to the coaches who gave their time, to the kids that participated in the clinics, to Terry and his team for organizing everything so seamlessly, and to our very special guest Milos Raonic - we are truly and forever grateful for the amazing support that our tennis ‘family’ and community has shown us.

With our thanks and gratitude,

The Draxls

Hello everyone,

Thank you for being part of a fantastic event yesterday! It was wonderful to see the children interacting with both Milos and Liam and having loads of fun!!! It was truly a special atmosphere and we are honoured to have been part of it.

We are also excited to announce that we raised $7,560 total through the combination of our GoFundMe campaign and Silent Auction. Thank you so much for your generosity and we know how appreciative both Liam and his family are for your support.

A special thank you to both Liam and Milos, as well as our fabulous staff, for taking their time to help out yesterday. Both Milos and Liam are wonderful young men who are representing Tennis Clubs of Canada, and tennis within Canada, with such tremendous character. We couldn't be more proud of them!

We will be sending you some videos and photos within the next few days. Stay tuned!

On behalf of all our entire staff at Tennis Clubs of Canada, thank you again!

Kind regards,

Adam Seigel
General Manager
