Family tennis at Henderson Saturday

Event hosted in conjunction with Wilson World Demo Tour offers tips, gear to try, prizes and more

Just in time for summer, residents are invited to Henderson Rec Centre this Saturday for a family-friendly tennis celebration.

Hosted in partnership with the Wilson World Demo Tour, the day features music, on-court contests and prizes. Oak Bay tennis instructors will be on hand to offer tips and strategies to help players of all ages improve their game.

“I want more families to be playing,” says Simon Vickers, Recreation Oak Bay Tennis Program Supervisor. “It gets families active and outdoors and in Oak Bay we have a number of fantastic courts.”

Family Tennis Day runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Henderson tennis courts. All players – juniors and adults, beginners and experienced – are welcome. Play with a coach, have a free assessment of your level of play, try the latest Wilson racquets and analyze the speed and spin of your shots.

To qualify for the grand prize from Wilson, register http://wdt.wilson.com, otherwise, come on down and take in the celebration of tennis as a fun, family sport.
