ADTA held its Annual Spring Invitational Tournament with 16 players participating. The winners were Colin Franes and James Foucault in first place with Mike Baldwin and Patrick Farmer coming in second. Gloria Mertens and Dan Farmer took third place.
The weather co-operated for the whole day and into the evening. Nutritious goodies such as apples, oranges, pears and nutrri-bars were provided for the early morning games. An evening BBQ was held at the Kormendy residence with entertainment provided by John Farmer with his modified version of Stomping Tom Connors’ “The Good Old Hockey (Tennis) Game”.
Trophies designed by Helen Kormendy were presented with all cash prizes re-donated back to the club. A draw was held for other prizes. A big thank you to Colin Franes for his donation of several water bottles, Semlin Valley Golf Club for an 18-hole pass, Dolly Lowe for a ceramic bowl and to Desert Hills for 24 bottles of water.
Our AGM was held with Maria Russell Martin acclaimed as president, Justin Moore as treasurer, Ana Ho, Andy Kormendy and John Farmer as directors. We look forward to being served a season full of tennis wishing our players lots of “love” games at the Merritt Tournament, the Senior Games and the Joyce Hyslop Ladies Doubles in Kamloops. We are always looking for new players. Do come out and try our unique Sports Grid courts located at Ashcroft Secondary School.
