Welcome to our new chair!

She has run an incredibly popular women’s Summer A/B league for more than 2 decades and has served at all levels of the TDWSA and on the Squash Ontario Master’s committee.

Elka is our Past TDWSA Chair.

Carol Johnston

Communications Officer
Carol has been playing squash since her days at WLU.  She began playing T&D in the D league with Valhalla, then Racquet & Fitness Academy and finally Fitness Institute (now OneHealth).  Carol and her team moved up to play C league in 2016.  Carol is passionate about T&D and has captained teams for 15+ years.
While Carol has a passion for squash and likes to be competitive on court, in her view, the best part of T&D is the social aspect after where she has met many women and developed life long friendships off the court.
Carol is TDWSA’s Communications Officer and A League Convenor.

 

League Development Officers

Alison LeBer

League Development Officer - East
Alison has had the squash ‘bug’ for about 10 years. Nicole Pirko, the pro at Pickering, convinced her to play in her first tournament — the Lee Hanebury  in 2008 — and she had such a blast that I never looked back. Alison met a great bunch of women, joined T&D at the D Level, worked at her game, jumped to B, dabbled in A for a couple of seasons and played B again in 2016-17.  Alison has served on the TDWSA executive since 2015 and loves seeing other women get energized and enthused by this fabulous sport.

Alison is TDWSA’s Chair and President.

Cari Fraser

League Development Officer - West
Cari started working at a friend’s pro shop in a racquet club over 20 years ago.  By watching others play, she quickly learned that squash was an excellent workout and decided that she had to try it!  There was a great group of women at Cari’s club playing in the TDWSA and they encouraged her to join their team.  Cari was so glad that she did!  Not only did squash keep Cari fit over the years, it also helped her to make many lifelong friendships.

Cari is the C league Convenor.

Niki Aron

League Development Officer - South

 

Niki started playing squash at age 26, while working at the Adelaide Club. She has developed a strong passion for fitness and squash over the last 16 years. She has played her way through every division in the TDWSA and believes that her fitness has been a big part of that. Feel free to ask her anything about squash or fitness, she is here to help.

Special Programs

Summer League

Wendy Train

Summer C/D Co-Convenor
Wendy loves to play squash and hates to see an empty court. She believes in spot training and “getting her butt kicked” as a way to improve. She counts Shariff Khan among her friends and was thrilled to share the court with Sam Cornett when Canada’s #1 dropped by to meet our E League players last season. An enthusiastic volunteer, Wendy has helped run E league in past years and is an avid recruiter of women to the game!

Wendy is currently our Secretary.
