Lots of great tennis, great food and fantastic weather.

Comox Valley Tennis Club president Brenda Dean noted that was the winning combination for this year’s Any Two for Tennis tournament, which the club hosted June 22-24 at the Anderton courts in Comox.

The open, mixed doubles format is traditionally the club’s most popular event. “Thank you to Danielle Caldwell and her team for the wonderful and delicious food.  The food really does make it extra special,” Dean said.

“To everyone else – there are so many I am afraid to name everyone in case I miss someone – thank you for all of your help. Without you, none of this would have been possible,” Dean added.
