The Arrowsmith Tennis Club is looking forward to full slate of activities this season.

Athough the wet weather conditions have dampened the start of spring tennis, the club has managed to have more than 1oo members renew their membership as well gain some newcomers.

The first round robin of the season is slated to start on May 7 at Springwood Park tennis courts. Participants are asked to arrive early at 8:45 to register with play slated to start at 9 a.m. There will be some refreshments provided. The event is free of charge to all members.

The club has lined up a number of activities this summer. It will hold ball machine practice every Tuesday at Springwood from 10 a.m. to noon, while tennis practice is every Thursday at Qualicum Beach from 9 a.m. to noon.
