Richmond, BC – Olympic Day 2019 took place on June 7th at the Richmond Oval. Over 1,500 students attended the event this year, and the tennis was once again a popular station. For many of the participants, it was their very first time playing tennis!
We would like to extend our gratitude to our amazing volunteers for their time and effort in making this a fun, education and memorable event for everyone. Thank you to Kiyo, Nathan, Kim, Jeanne and Bill from the Northeast Tennis Society and Richmond Tennis Club for their tireless effort in leading the activities and ensuring everyone’s fun and safety!
Did you know that Jeanne Jensen from the Richmond Tennis Club is a former Olympic Swimmer? Jeanne attended the Olympics in Mexico in 1968. You can see her wearing her Olympic jacket in the photo with fellow Olympians.
