My name is Rob Fielden. I am the new President of the Campbell River Tennis Club. I would like to thank Paul Jennings for his service as President for the past 3 years and the previous 16 years as Vice President. Paul is going to continue to assist with the Tennis Socials. I also would like to thank Alastair McCrindle who has stepped down after serving as Treasurer for the past two years. I would like to welcome Dave Bannerman who has volunteered to take over this role. Dave and I will be working with Sid Shook, the Vice President, and Wendy Thurlborn, the Secretary, who are providing continuity and guidance for the club executive.
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.
