The Arrowsmith Tennis Club (ATC), which is based at Springwood Park in Parksville, has been busy again this year with fun, daily drop-in sessions.

This year the membership included 44 women, 74 men and 24 juniors. Play will continue year round as long as the weather allows.

On a more competitive level, the ATC ladies team (3.0-3.5 level) repeated their success of last year by winning their division of the North Island League. The team was invited to play in the Tennis B.C. Miele Provincial tournament in Whistler. With a second place finish last year, the team moved up a division and came in fourth out of six teams.

Next up for the ATC is the mixed tournament championship, Sept. 19-21. Visit for more information.
