TED BEARD WON the WestJet round trip ticket







Mother Nature cooperated and the Comox Valley Tennis Club was able to get in the Any Two For Tennis Mixed Tournament, June 24-26 at the Anderton tennis courts.

“We were fortunate not only with the weather but with the quality of play and sportsmanship that was shown throughout this tournament,” said Brenda Dean of the CVTC. “As with any successful event, it is because of the volunteers that make it possible. Thank you to all and huge hats off to Patrick and Marion McGrath for feeding us all so well.”

Susie Fraser secured WestJet as the major sponsor for this event again this year, and they donated a round trip ticket for two anywhere WestJet flies. “This raffle raised over $2,000 and will go towards our pledge to the Town of Comox to contribute in the expense of repairing and resurfacing the Anderton tennis courts. Congratulations to the winner Ted Beard,” Dean said.

Next up is the Nautical Days Tournament July 29 – Aug. 1. This year we will feature one day only draws so that you can enjoy all of the other festivities being offered in the Comox Valley that August long weekend and still play some tennis.

On the Friday evening the club will be hosting an “All whites and wooden racquet” tournament. This will be a fundraiser with monies earmarked for the Anderton court repairs. More details regarding this fundraiser and tournament format will be posted to the website soon.
