2022 SEASON

June, 2022 Update

Registration is now complete. We are full, with a lengthy waitlist, and it seems that we may not have space for anyone else this season.  

The singles ladder and doubles league have started; each month they reset so if you want to join the league or ladder then contact Ray. 

For newcomers, note that there is no water and there are no restrooms at the Parkade on Wednesdays and Fridays, so plan accordingly!

For the foreseeable future, we will continue to have someone 'in charge' each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, to assign you to a court ... check in when you arrive. And be prepared that sometimes it will be very busy (at least until the other community clubs start up) so you might be sitting a little more than you prefer. 

Hoping that the weather improves soon. We have had a few rainouts but maybe summer will arrive on time.
