Thanks to Matt & Milos, this Ontario town can look forward to community tennis

A few weeks ago, I heard about and interviewed a 13-year-old boy from Petrolia, ON, trying to raise funds to pay for the resurfacing of the Town’s only two tennis courts. My feature, titled Matt Mueller, 13, is on a mission to save his community’s tennis courts, (written for the blog I write for Tennis Canada), struck a chord with many, and I’m thrilled to report, has a very happy ending.

A very big thank you to Canada’s top-ranked player, Milos Raonic, for his incredible leadership and support. It seems my feature caught the attention of Milos, who contacted the Town and offered to top up Matt’s fundraising drive to enable the resurfacing of the courts.

Time, energy, talent, skill, knowledge, financial means… share what you’ve got, make a difference, and be the change!
