Asher Kandathil


Asher has lived, trained, and competed around the world at junior and senior levels. As a junior he played in and won Provincial and National tournaments in Canada, India, and Spain, where he held Top 50, Top 10, and Top 100 rankings respectively. He played in the Orange Bowl in Florida and the Asia Cup in India. Early success gave Asher the opportunity to live in tennis obsessed Spain for 4 years training under Andy Murray’s former coach, Pato Alvarez at world renowned Sanchez Casal Academy in Barcelona. During this time, he played in ITF tournaments and an ATP Challenger tournament.

Asher’s competitive career was, unfortunately, cut short by injury sustained in the final of the Spanish Nationals, but his passion for tennis was unquenched and he felt the undeniable pull to become a coaching professional. Asher set out to get relevant education and graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Sports Performance in the Spring of 2023 from Hartpury University in Gloucester, England. He is also certified as a TPA Club Pro 1. Asher has worked as the Head Pro at Carleton University, coached the Capital Kids program at its various club venues around Ottawa, and at the Rideau Sports Centre, General Burns Tennis Club, Lac Sainte Marie Club in Quebec. 

He is motivated and inspired by tennis players looking to up their game no matter what their age or level. Asher loves being around people, playing cricket and sharing his love of music, hiking, and travelling. Asher is fluent in English, Hindi, and Spanish.

Asher is very much looking forward to coaching at Thorncliffe Park in 2024. He is excited to get started and meet new people who share his love of the game. Asher is available and keen to teach private, semi-private and group lessons during the days, evenings, and weekends as they are able to fit in around club programming.
