DAWSON FOX SERVES one up during the Ben Bellamy junior tennis play day in Comox.

Ben Bellamy junior tennis play day a big hit

First of three sessions proved popular at Anderton Park courts in Comox

The first of three Ben Bellamy junior tennis play days was held last weekend in Comox.

The junior members of the Comox Valley Tennis Club are coached by Brenda Dean and have been taking twice weekly lessons since mid April. Being the first tournament-style event for many players, it was interesting to watch their confidence grow and to see the players settle into their game.

After a well-deserved burger for lunch, the players came back to the courts. The afternoon showed continued improvement evident by longer rallies and determined effort. The shouts of encouragement, high fives and laughter certainly showed that all had a great time.

The next play day will be in Cowichan, where the players get their first chance to play on a grass surface. These play days are sponsored through the generosity of the Bellamy family in honour of their son, Ben, who was a talented and dedicated tennis player.
