Kimberly Pallarca first learned her tennis through her Philpott Tennis lessons at the Malvern Community Centre site. After receiving her Tennis Canada Level One instructor Certification through Tennis Canada, Philpott and the Toronto Sports Leadership Program (2015), this summer Kimberly taught Philpott tennis lessons on her home court. She was joined by instructors Zilin Xie and Saurav Masand. Saurav also first started his tennis lessons through the Philpott program at the Malvern site and now Saurav and Kimberly, former Philpott campers, are certified instructors teaching together.
Each Friday the younger campers are given a Certificate of Achievement. This summer Kimberly brought along the Philpott certificate she received in 2010 to share with the 2016 campers. The campers were thrilled to think that they too could one day be certified Philpott tennis instructors.
