See you on the courts,
We are very excited to announce 2 upcoming events to mark on your calendar!
Firstly, the annual Wooden Racquet Tournament will be taking place again on Canada Day (July 1st), from roughly 12-3pm. This is a friendly tournament open to all members with no entry fee or pre-registration. Come on out dressed in Canadian colours and show off your vintage wooden racquet tennis skills!
Secondly, we will be hosting a Wimbledon viewing party/potluck breakfast for the men’s championship match, currently scheduled for 8am on Sunday, July 10th. We encourage all interested to bring a light meal/food item to add to the potluck breakfast for all to share and enjoy, while watching the match together on the new big screen TV!
Please let us know should you have any questions, and as always, see you on the courts.
