The newly resurfaced tennis courts at Anderton Park in Comox means tennis can be played year round.

New year is happy indeed for Comox Valley tennis players

Tennis is now a year-round sport in Comox thanks to the resurfacing of the courts paid for by the Comox Valley Tennis Club, Province of B.C. and the Town of Comox.

Local players celebrated the new-look courts and the new year on Jan. 2 with the first fun tournament of the year at Anderton Park. Once the New Year’s greetings were exchanged, teams were formatted and the games began.

The tournament gave everyone a chance to play with different partners and plan their strategies for the upcoming season. Many thanks to Marion and Pat McGrath for organizing the event and preparing the delicious soup.

The tennis club has a new website comoxvalleytennis.org so check it out and get ready for lots of fun and challenging play in 2016. Tennis leagues will commence in March. New members are always welcome.
