    PENTICTON TENNIS CLUB CLOSED MIXED DOUBLES TOURNAMENT


    Wendy Whibley & Lauren Banerd winners of the PTC Mixed Doubles Tournament with Jack Shepe & Bob Brownell

     SATURDAY, JUNE 23RD

    7 teams played in the first PTC Mixed Doubles Tournament.  After playing a super set game to determine the 2 flights 4 teams were in the Wimbledon Group and 3 in the French Open Group where each team played every other team. As the temperatures heated up so did the players. After the last point was scored we had our champions.

    Winners of the French Open group were Wendy Strachan & Butch Short. 

    Winners of the Wimbledon Group and the PTC Doubles Bowl were Wendy Whibley & Lauren Banerd who joined our club 3 years ago and play mostly on the weekends. 

    Pictures of all the players are in the Photo’s section of our web site. 

    Congratulations to all and thanks to Bob Brownell for arranging the draws and Jack Shepe for coordinating the play and barbequing the burgers for lunch.

    Hopefully we’ll have more teams next year.

    LESSONS AVAILABLE THIS SPRING

    The Penticton Tennis Club is happy to announce that Steve & Gillian Hunn will be providing lessons again this year at the club.  Details are below.  Note that you need to be a member of the club for the free lessons.  Registration for membership can be done on line.  Registration for the lessons should be done directly to Steve.

    The free lessons for juniors and adults would be on Wednesdays from May 2 to May 16. Juniors would be from 5:00 - 6:00 and adults will be 6:00 - 7:00. If there is a large number of younger kids we could have a separate session for them from 4:15 - 5:00. I’d also like to invite adults to stay and play after for another hour after the lessons. That would be 2 courts from 5:00 to 8:00. I suggest that we require everyone who participates in the lessons would need to be Club members.
     
    We would also like to have an open day on Saturday, May 5. It would be free to anyone and could include lessons for adults and juniors, ball machine demonstrations and organized play. It would be nice if the club could provide money for a bbq afterwards. I’m thinking of going from 1:00 to 4:00. 
     
    After the free lessons we would offer another series of 4 group lessons from May 23 to June 13. That would be 2 courts from 5:00 to 8:00.
     
    The junior summer camps would run from 10:00 to 12:00 and, based on previous attendance, we would use all 4 courts for the following 3 weeks
     
    July 16 to July 20
    July 30 to Aug 3
    Aug 27 to Aug 31
