Tennis BC’s Selection Series #2 event has now concluded. We have one selection series event left before the Indoor Provincials, which take place later this month and in early March. These events, including the Provincial Championships, decide which junior players will represent Team BC at the 2020 Indoor Canadian National Championships. Thank you to all of the host clubs, volunteers, players, parents, and officials for two great selection series events so far. View more photos from Selection Series #2
