TORONTO, Canada — Former Davis Cup player, Jamaican native Karl Hale’s newest venture is the Caribbean Cup Tennis Series — a seven event series featuring top junior, seniors and professional tennis players from around the world. The Caribbean Cup Series is centered on the four Cs — Caribbean, Competition, Charity and Camaraderie.
Forty-one years ago Hale moved to Canada with his family. At age 13, he began his tennis career and went on to play Davis Cup for Jamaica, as well as made appearances on the pro tour circuit. In 2007, he was ranked the #1 player over 40 in the world. His talents shone as he transitioned into coaching and worked his way up from academies in Japan to becoming the head of the Canadian Federation Cup Team. And for the last decade, Hale has achieved enormous success in directing the Rogers Cup — the largest one week tennis tournament in the world.
