Expert Corner: Ken Crosina on Tennis
Meet Ken Crosina
Meet our Ken Crosina! Ken has been working at Mayfair Clubs for seven years; with the last four years in his role as Director of Tennis. Prior to joining the Mayfair team, Ken was the Head Tennis Professional for 12 years at Campus Tennis Centre in Oshawa.
Ken grew up playing tennis in Toronto and was coached at Mayfair Parkway by Gus Villanueva as a junior. In two years, Gus took Ken’s game to the next level as Ken finished 5th at the National Championships in back to back years. With Mayfair hosting so many high level tournaments, it was the perfect place to train for Ken and many other top ranked National Juniors.
