Nelson Tennis Club to open Saturday

Access to the courts is free for the season opener


Nelson Tennis Club is hosting its first season opener at its brand new facility at L.V. Rogers on Saturday.

The event, which runs 2 to 6 p.m., is free, with food and refreshments by donation. Both the tennis courts and pickleball courts will be open for play.

At 3 p.m. there will be fun activities and challenges for the juniors, and at 4 p.m. organized skills and drills with the tennis coach for the adults.

If you cannot make the season opener and still want to test the waters for your long-lost or yet-to-be-discovered tennis game, then the club is hosting free Newbie Nights every Tuesday until the end of May between 5 and 7 p.m.

Drop by anytime during the season opener to learn more about the Nelson Tennis Club’s plans to build both a facility centre and children’s playground on site later this year.

Anyone who buys a 2019 membership by Saturday will get their name entered to win a case of 48 tennis balls, or a carton of pickle balls. For more information about membership rates or events, go to or call 250-777-2591.
