Born in India, Archie Chawla has been a staple in Winnipeg’s sports community since moving to Canada 4 decades ago. He has served as a Squash, Badminton & Tennis professional throughout his career both in private clubs (Wildewood Club, Canoe Club & Winnipeg Winter Club) as well as earning the highly coveted Provincial Coach role for the Manitoba Badminton Association. Archie’s passion for sports is evident to everyone who knows him (either as an athlete, coach, or retailer).
Archie founded the Racquets Pro Shop in 1981 at the Winnipeg Canoe Club. Following the Canoe Club’s closure, Archie relocated the shop to the Winnipeg Winter Club (Winnipeg’s premiere athletic club). The current staff has over 50 years of combined racquet stringing and sales experience (more than any other pro shop in Winnipeg). Racquets Pro Shop is a proud sponsor of many local tournaments and events throughout the province of Manitoba and serves as the “home shop” for many of the region’s top athletes across all racquet sports.
