Tennis club concludes successful season

The Comox Valley Tennis Club has had an extremely successful season, and with over 250 members the courts have never been busier.

Many new players joined the club this year and participated in the new member Friday drop-ins in April. Their enthusiasm and excitement about playing tennis added a great deal to the club.

A new-member round robin tournament was also added to the season wrap-up with Mike Holland winning and George Fortier runner-up.

Volunteers are the key to any successful club and many thanks to Tony Wong, Dave McLeod and Pat McGrath for running the various events throughout the season, Peter Hagberg and Shirley Kirk who assisted with the very active 52 Juniors enrolled in the Junior Tennis Program and Judy Francis and Don Axtell who organized the Spring and Summer Leagues.

The annual club wind-up yournament was held at the Anderton Courts. In  men’s singles Berend Henckel defeated Rob Calder; women’s A doubles Sue Twose and Kim Lessard defeated Annette Mayo and Sheila Ives;, Women’s B Judy Francis and Cynthia Tree defeated Jill Nelson and Christine Cybulski; Men’s A Rob Calder and Marcel Moose defeated Berend and Real L’Abbe; mixed A doubles Shane Field and Annette Mayo defeated Barb Jefferson and Rob Calder; mixed doubles B Tony Wong and Caroline Bouchard defeated Daryl  Bissell and Cynthia Tree.

The club also conducted its AGM and election of executive members for the next season. Tony Wong will be returning as president assisted by Adam Duncan (vice-president), Dave McLeod (secretary), Don Axtell (treasurer), Judy Francis (membership), Pat McGrath (facilities), Shirley Kirk (communications) and Julie Kosolofski (junior development). Don Axtell, Catherine Black and Eric Epp have volunteered to organize the leagues.
