The 2018 LadySport Doubles Championships held at the Jericho Tennis Club on February 24 & 25 was a huge success. An unexpected snow storm threatened to wreck havoc with the draws & schedules, but most of the players were able to find a way to the courts on Friday, so the ‘show’ went on! And as expected by the next day, conditions had turned to melting snow & beautiful sunshine!
A record number of teams – 148 players in total – signed up to compete in this fun weekend of doubles-only women’s tennis. Friendly volunteers kept things rolling along and handing out bananas and treats. Competitors each received player gift bags filled with awesome goodies, and the epic Saturday night banquet had the ladies lining up for Cheddar Booth open-air digital photos, and everyone enjoyed the incredible buffet dinner with a waterfront view. There were 8 categories in total, and winners & finalists all received a beautiful glass-etched trophy.
A big thank you to title sponsor LadySport who once again supported the BC Senior Women’s Tennis Association (BCSWTA) and the tennis community, as well as co-sponsors SierraSil, Dexter Associated Realty and Amica at Arbutus Manor. Draw prizes, which were all generously donated by local stores, restaurants & organizations, were won by 20 lucky ladies.
