Tournaments

Tournaments

We usually have a few tournaments a year.   It starts in June with a Strawberry Tea Social tournament to coincide with the Wimbledon Tournament. We have one or two more throughout the season with a theme of their own.    The fun doesn’t end with tennis as we frequently gather at a member’s home for an after tennis potluck dinner.  We traditionally have a tournament in December at Arbutus Ridge Tennis Courts. Summer tournaments are open to the entire community to come out and play, you do not need to be a member ($10.00 fee if not member).

The dates for the tournaments for 2021 are TBD and will be announced by mid May 2021.
