Any Two for Tennis tournament a big hit

North Island Regional Tennis Society's hopes for $250,000 grant dashed

The Comox Valley Tennis club held its annual Any Two for Tennis tournament July 18-19 at the Anderton courts in Comox.

Wow, what a great turnout. No doubt about the weather and of course the food. This year’s main draw winners are Diane and Rob Calder. Finalists

are Sheila Ives and Shane Field.

B draw winners were Annette Mayo and Real Labbe, finalists Shirley Kirk and Vernon Dean. C draw winners were Wendy Thurlborn and David Bannerman, finalists Rowena Barr and Tony (up hills both ways) Wong.

Lots of tennis and lots of fun. Congratulations to all. Most Sportsmanlike trophy was awarded to the team of Diane and Rob Calder. Their attitude both on and off the court represents sportsmanship at its finest.

Many thanks go to Marion and Pat McGrath for all of their hard work and delicious food and to all of the other volunteers that help make this event so

successful.

Hats off to our sponsors, High Strung Racquets, Comox Recreation, Comox Valley Tennis Club and In Your Court Tennis Academy.

See you at the Lewis Open, Aug. 14-16: singles, doubles and mixed. To register, go to cvtennis.com.

Out of Play

In other tennis news, the North Island Regional Tennis Society was unsuccessful in its bid to net a $250,000 grant from Kraft Project Play. Their submission was to build a four-court indoor tennis facility for the North Island at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

Salt Spring Island’s project, to repair their public tennis courts in Portlock Park, is one of four finalists for the $250,000 grand prize. (See the final four at kraftprojectplay.com).

“The only other submission that I thought was excellent was Salt Spring,” said NIRTS spokesperson Brenda Dean. “I said that was our competition (and) they won.

 

“I thought our group did an amazing job and it brought us all together. We’ll get them next time!” she added.
