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 nelsontennisclub.com or call 250-777-2591.
