Vancouver, BC – The Park did not see any action yesterday as the rain continued throughout the day. The Davis Trading ITF and 3.5 Star singles matches were played indoors at UBC Tennis Centre, and a handful of NTRP matches were played at Vancouver International Tennis Academy. Thank you to both clubs for accommodating the LWSPO matches! The Selection Series events, junior doubles and the remainder of the NTRP matches had to be rescheduled.
