The Arrowsmith Tennis Club got its season going last weekend.
It hosted its first round robin tournament on May 5, drawing approximately 36 members who came out to enjoy a sunny day of tennis.
The event, a popular social activity of the club, provided an opportunity for members to meet and play tennis with other members who they might not get a chance to see throughout the season. The club has members from Parksville Qualicum Beach and neighbouring communities.
The second round robin will be held on June 2.
The Arrowsmith Tennis Club’s Oceanside Open is taking place on Saturday, June 16. It is open to all comers for a $10 entry fee. The play will be men’s doubles and ladies’ doubles. There will be lunch and prizes.
