UPDATE ON 2021 SEASON

To False Creek Tennis Club members:

Step 3

BC is now in Step 3 of return to sport. At this time, masks are no longer required. 

During the hot weather, please be sure to rest and hydrate. There is no water at the Parkade so bring plenty of your own. (By the way, the Parkade courts have been swept and washed!) At Granville Island, there is a public water fountain over the little bridge beside the sea wall bike path. 

Stay safe, everyone!

RIP Gord Hauka

It is with extreme sadness that we learned of Gord Hauka's passing on June 30, 2021. Gord supported our club when it first got started, and throughout the years he helped assess new players, he directed new members to us, and he gave group lessons to our club members. All this while introducing thousands of Vancouverites to the sport he loved so much. His cheerfulness and thoughtfulness and consideration will be much missed.

We will share further details when available.

July 8: A go fund me page has been set up to help Gord's family: see link in the blue bar above
