Good turnout for Community Junior Tennis Play Day in Comox

Young players from all across Vancouver Island were in Comox last week for a Community Junior Tennis Play Day.

Twenty-six young people from all over Vancouver Island assembled at the Anderton Park tennis courts this past Sunday for a Community Junior Tennis Play Day.

Hosted by Brenda Dean and the Comox Recreation Centre, Dean says, “With the growth of tennis

in Canada due to the success of Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard it is exciting to see all of these young people come out and play the game.”

There were children from Nanaimo, Parksville, Victoria and of course our own crew from the Comox Valley. The number of children committed to playing tennis in programming and in league play, groups and schools has continued to swell. Parents are getting out with their children, too.

“It’s so exciting to be a part of this. I am very grateful for the community support. It takes all of us working together to make these things happen,” Dean said.

A huge thank you to the Comox Recreation Centre for the use of the courts, Kim Lessard, Trevor Fox and Michelle Campbell for their support and help with the children on court. Also, mention must be made of the local tennis players that came out. Isaac Larrivee, Johnny Winkelaar, Dawson Fox, Owen Field, Jesse Grant, Elisha Grant, Marcus Ciastkowski, Benny Langhans, Shervin Singh, Lauren Bolton, Noa Fleming, Keelie Duncan, Easton Sangris, Samara Drygasuk, and Evan Bolton.
