Fraser MacDonald, a commercial Realtor with Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage in Toronto has chalked up several big wins over the summer. Coming off an Ontario provincial doubles over 55 championship, MacDonald and his national teammate Bob Excell (Vancouver) won the men’s over 55 doubles category at a the Senior National tournament held in Montreal Aug. 16 to 22. MacDonald also owns the title in Toronto in 2014, with Len Simard from Florida.

“Bob and I came into nationals as the number one seed, but we really didn’t know who we’d meet in the finals,” said MacDonald. His recent tennis doubles success comes after having both hips replaced in 2008 and 2009. “I love the game and had the replacements so I could keep at it and I am happy to find myself training hard and winning tournaments.”

MacDonald has his sights on qualifying for the four-man national team to play in Finland in May of 2016.
