More than ever before, Tennis Nova Scotia (TNS) is committed to growing tennis across Nova Scotia and providing opportunities for all to participate at a level consistent with their personal goals and aspirations. Tennis Nova Scotia believes in instilling positive personal values through competition and training and that all Nova Scotians, regardless of age, place of residence, financial means, or physical ability, should be given an opportunity to participate in and enjoy the game of tennis. Tennis Nova Scotia will be the operator of the new $11 million-dollar Atlantic Tennis Centre (ATC) under construction in Bedford. The ATC, which is in the final stages of completion, is a state-of-the-art building that will be one of Canada’s top tennis facilities.
