Aforza has been serving Calgarians since 1973 when it was established by Rico Policarpo. Rico aspired to make tennis accessible to everyone in the city throughout the winter months. He successfully achieved this goal when he covered six outdoor public tennis courts with a bubble and attached an Atco trailer to serve as a clubhouse.
In summer 2000, Aforza expanded with four new indoor courts, a large clubhouse with men's and women's locker rooms, a well-equipped pro shop and a fully serviced lounge. We are now the largest public indoor tennis club in Western Canada.
Aforza has a long history of supporting and developing competitive tennis in Alberta. We have produced nine National Junior Champions, with many juniors having attained a national ranking of six or better. We host 16 tournaments a year for Tennis Alberta, which is more than every other club in Alberta combined.
Do you have old pictures, stories, newspaper clippings or an idea for an alumni feature?
Please share with us by contacting Karen so we can build, protect and showcase all the incredible things we’ve done and the people who made it possible.
