Davis Cup!

Our best-kept secret for the last month finally was announced on Monday with Davis Cup coming back to Edmonton on September 15-17. The Royal Glenora Club has been approached to help with the organizing of this event, and that may include some of our indoor courts being used as practice courts for Team Canada and Team India on the week leading up to the event. As well, there is the potential for a banquet event.
In order to ensure all of our Members will have an opportunity to take in this event we have cancelled all programs from Friday, September 15 at 1pm through the weekend. More information about this event and events leading up to the Davis Cup will be available leading up to September 15-17.

Used Tennis Balls

Thank you to everyone who has been using the tennis ball recycling containers. We will continue to collect balls throughout the year and give them a second life. If anyone is interested in the used balls, please come by the tennis office.
