Any Two for Tennis a hit

Annual tournament provides lots of fun and good competition

MOST SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD winner Denis Robinson accepts his plaque from tournament director Brenda Dean.

This weekend the Comox Valley Tennis Club hosted their annual Any Two for Tennis Mixed Tennis Tournament.

The weather thankfully co-operated so fun was had by all. This year’s main draw winners are Debbie Harit (Nanaimo) and Gord Verge (Parskville); finalists Lynda Livingston (Campbell River) and Bert Sundberg (Parksville).

Winners of the B draw are Debra Hayoe  and Hugh Deas-Dawlish (Chemanius); finalists Susan Bosveld-Bowyer and Mike Bourassa (Comox Valley). Winners of the C draw are Marion Vasseur and Chris Evans (Powell River); finalists Dawn Christian and Denis Robinson (Comox Valley).

This year Denis Robinson was nominated and chosen for the Most Sportsmanship Award. Denis is a stalwart supporter and member of our tennis club.  He continues to support every tennis event with commitment and enthusiasm.  His attitude on and off the court represents sportsmanship at its finest.

Thank you to our sponsors, Plates, High Strung Racquets, Booster Juice, In Your Court Tennis & Fitness Academy, Longlands Golf, Boston Pizza, VI Fitness and the Comox Valley Sports & Aquatic Centre.

A huge thank you to Pat and Marion Mcgrath for the wonderful food and all of the other volunteers that help make this event so successful.
