About Us

Inspire Through Sport is an organization designed to provide programs, courses, resources and hands-on experience to foster inspirational leadership development. We have partnered with the Tennis Professional Association (TPA), Tennis BC, the Ontario Tennis Association, and Tennis Alberta to deliver our program with the intention of expanding Nationally. Working collaboratively with the TPA and the Provincial Tennis Associations is a top priority for us to ensure high quality standards are met throughout our delivery.

Co-founders, Nikki Carnovale and Rachel Gould were both fortunate to grow in an environment with incredible mentors to help motivate them and instill a belief that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to. Seeing first hand how the people you surround yourself with determines the way you move forward in life has made them wish to share the experience with others on starting this journey.
