Club News

The 2016 tennis club season wrap tournaments were well attended with over 45 members participating in the two-weekend tournaments. A big shout out to Don Axtell for running a smooth tournament & to Dave McLeod for organizing breakfast, lunch, refreshments & snacks. Well done team.

The 1st unofficial Tim Horton's Cup was presented to Berend & the "Prizes" for the runner up were sponsored by Mike "the killer forehand" Gould, chips &chip clips, how can you top that!

Annette, Sue, Kim & Sheila  getting set for their doubles match under the sunny blue sky. Fantastic food & sunny weather,what a wonderful way to wrap up the 2016 season. 

The tennis club Xmas Party was held on Dec. 9th with over 80 members & guests in attendance. Excellent ham & turkey dinner along with great dancing music, we even spotted one "cripple" out on the dance floor. Mark down Friday, December 8th on your calendar for the 2017 CVTC Christmas Party. 

The 2017 tennis season planning is well underway, the famous TGIF nights run by Pat and Marion is definitely on the social agenda. In addition, Judy Francis will run the New Member Meet & Greet fun tennis Friday drop ins during the month of April. 

We are also looking at inter club visits to Power River& Arrowsmith Tennis Club, so if you are interested in volunteering for the Social Committee, please contact one of the executives (you can also register on the website).

Put away the snow shovel & get your tennis gear ready, look forward seeing you out on the tennis court this season.
