Comox Valley Tennis Club wraps up busy season

The Comox Valley Tennis Club (CVTC) recently completed its 2015 playing  season with the annual Club Tournament on the Anderton Park courts in Comox.

In the A mixed doubles event, Rob and Diane Calder defeated Joe Yelder and Annette Mayo in a long match that was decided by a third set tiebreaker. Earlier in the season the Calders also won the mixed doubles event in the Lewis Park tournament.

In B mixed doubles, hard-hitting Peter Hagberg and his steady partner Judy Francis defeated Shirley Kirk and Dave McLeod.

In the singles championship, the final once again saw 2013 champion Rob Calder pitted against  Berand Henckel.  This year however, Henckel used his steady ground strokes to outlast Calder in a match  made particularly interesting by the unpredictable afternoon winds.

The women’s doubles event was won by Sheila Ives and Annette Mayo who defeated Cathy Cockwell and Diane Calder in a tough three setter.  The men’s doubles again saw Berand Henckel and Rob Calder on opposite sides of the net. Henckel and partner Oliver Ramsey defeated Calder and Mike Gould in three sets.

During the wind-up events the club conducted its annual meeting and election of executive members for next season. Tony Wong was elected president. He is joined by vice-presidents Adam Duncan and Steven Crampton, secretary David McLeod. and treasurer and past-president Don Axtell.

Also elected were Pat McGrath and Susan Bosveld-Bowyer, Peter Hagberg, Judy Francis and Ron Olsen. The meeting also gave a vote of thanks to retiring executive member Cathy Curry, who has served the club for many years in a variety of capacities including Junior Development chair and club president. Also recognized were Danielle Caldwell, who served as secretary, and Susie Frazer,  a former treasurer and league co-ordinator.

The tennis club again offered members a varied slate of completive leagues and social events. In addition to the club tournament, the Any Two For Tennis mixed doubles tournament was again held, exchanges were organized with the Powell River Tennis Club, and a team event with club members representing different countries proved popular.

The club’s Junior Development lessons were again offered by local tennis instructor and tennis enthusiast Brenda Dean.
