His topic expertise includes adolescence, children, exercise, fitness, nutrition, pediatrics and sports. Le Masurier enjoys playing squash and was a familiar figure at the Anderton Park tennis courts when he lived in the Comox Valley.

There will also be information presented about kids tennis, community team tennis, summer tennis programs, adult tennis lessons and the Comox Valley Tennis Club.
