Tennis players enjoy doubles

Final tourney of the season goes well under sunny skies in Comox

The Comox Valley Tennis Club (CVTC) completed its season-end club tournament  under bright sunny skies on  Sept. 7 in a well-attended mixed doubles event at Comox’s Anderton Park courts. Eighteen teams competed in A and B events.

The club event was played a week earlier this year in order to accommodate club members entered in the BC Senior Games being played in Langley.

In the eight-team A division the team of Susan South  and Dennis Kostyk came out on top. They were followed by  Kim Lessard and Mike Dewynter in second. Marilyn Isler-Churchill and Real Labbe then defeated  Annette Mayo and Joe Yelder in the third and fourth playoff.

Coming out on top of the two B Division robin robin events were Susan Bosveld-Bowyer and Peter Hagberg  in B1 and Sheila Precious and Tony Wong winning in B2.

During the weekend events the Comox Valley Tennis Club conducted its annual meeting and election of executive members for next season. Don Axtell is returning as president along with vice-president  Pat McGrath and Erick Epp as treasurer.

Joining the executive committee are Tony Wong as second vice-president and Danielle Caldwell as secretary. Other committee members are Cathy Curry, Susan Bosveld-Bowyer, David McLeod, Francine van der Shoot, Susie Fraser and Deb Berg.

A highlight of the season were the very active Junior Program run by Brenda Dean who has done so much to introduce tennis to new players of all ages in the Comox Valley. The CVTC’s evening leagues were particularly well-attended this year as were the popular Friday TGIF  tennis and socials.
