My name is Rob Fielden. I am the President of the Campbell River Tennis Club. Our executive for 2020 is Dave Bannerman (Treasurer), Sid Shook (Vice President) and Wendy Thurlborn (Secretary).
I would like to welcome all new and old members to the Campbell River Tennis club.
The CR Tennis club is a social and recreational club that welcomes new members regardless of their ability. We feature tennis tips for those who want to learn the game of tennis or for those of us who just want to relearn certain aspects to improve our game. These Tennis Tips are on Saturday mornings from 8:30-10:00 am starting May 25th.
Club play is 3 times a week. Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm and Saturday mornings from 10:00 am till 1:00 pm. Members come during club times and play doubles with other club members. There is no need to prearrange matches. Club members play a set of doubles then the players mix around ensuring everyone gets a chance to play. If you are new, club members will welcome you into play.
Our club also features a doubles ladder where everyone mixes and that play can be quite competitive because you will be playing others with similar abilities who want to move up in the rankings on the doubles ladder.
We also have monthly tennis mixer tournaments . These are fun tournaments where everyone who enters is randomly selected in groups of four and then they play for a timed amount (usually 20 minutes). Then, they regroup with another four players. These mixers are on Saturday morning and go from 10:00 am till approx. 1:00 pm.
If you have any interest in playing tennis and are not sure whether to join our club, you can come out to try it for two times at no charge.
Please read our entire website for further information about our club.

All events are located at Willow Point tennis courts:
Hello Tennis Players,
The City of Campbell River has allowed the Campbell River Tennis Club to booked the Willow Point tennis courts Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The fees will be $40 per person for the season that will start Tuesday, May 11 and end October 31.
To book the community courts we had to develop a COVID safety plan (a copy is available to all members) that club members must follow. Each member will be responsible for following the rules. If City staff see us violating the rules or members of the general public report us to the City for unsafe behavior the City could cancel our contract. Members that are concerned about unsafe behavior could bring it to the attention of a member of the executive. A clip board will be placed near the main gate that members must sign in for contact tracing. Several of the regular players will be asked to carry a clip board and the first to arrive will hang their board on the fence for people to sign. The owner of the clip board will take it with them when they leave.
Sid will be conducting lessons on Saturday 08:30 - 10:00 am for four weeks, starting May 22. People interested in lessons must leave their name with Sid. There is room for 16 players for a four week session. Another session may be held if the first session fills up.
Please leave your name with Sid if you are interested in joining a tennis ladder. A ladder might be run if there is enough interest.
