Our Community

Since 2012, Summer Smash Tennis has provided high quality tennis programs and classes to community centres and schools across Vancouver. Our team of certified coaches have worked with thousands of students to inspire a passion for tennis and sport. Together, we share a common goal of creating safe, fun, and challenging learning environments for all students. 

Our Story

Co-founders Spencer and Marshall Mackoff started Summer Smash with the goal of creating accessible programs for beginners that would allow them to develop the technical foundation needed to inspire a sustained love for the game. Distinct from other clubs or centres, Summer Smash utilizes a unique progression that scaffolds play through the development of technique. Through the use of our progression, students are given the foundation to excel as players for life.

 

Off the court, Spencer is an IB and BC Ministry Certified teacher with a specialization in English and Media, while Marshall is a recent graduate of UBC’s Peter A. Allard School of Law and a current articling student at Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang LLP, focusing on Commercial Litigation. Together, the brothers infuse Summer Smash with the knowledge, expertise, and best practices that they have developed through their academic and professional careers.

At Summer Smash Tennis, the safety of our students, families, and coaches is always our first priority. We understand that many students and parents may have concerns regarding COVID-19 and its potential effects on Summer Smash classes and programs. Read more about our safety measures here.
