Interview with Tady Saczkowski

Description

Tady has had a passion for tennis since he was a young boy when his grandparents introduced him to the sport. He currently resides in St. Catharines and is a member of both the Welland and White Oaks Tennis Clubs. He joined the NOTL Tennis Club in part because his interest in Niagara tennis history kept directing him to Niagara-on-the-Lake. He is a tennis historian and has an extensive collection of all things related to the Queen’s Royal Hotel and the NOTL Tennis Club from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He also is an avid supporter of the Niagara Peninsula Tennis and has an OTA Distinguished Service Award.
