Castlegar Sunfest tennis tournament a smash

There were 22 participants competing in doubles events with men’s, ladies, and mixed categories.

The fourth annual Sunfest Fun tennis tournament was successful once again. There were 22 participants in the one-day event competing in doubles events with men’s, ladies, and mixed categories.

The father-and-son team of Randy and Graeme Veitch came out on top in the men’s event. In the ladies, it was Linda Chmielewski and Pat West in the winner column. Pat West shared another win, this time with her mixed doubles partner, Norm Koerber. Everyone left a winner, however, as a random prize draw was held during the lunch break.

A thunderstorm created a short rain delay in the middle of the day, but with brooms and squeegees in hand the competitors took turns drying the courts. Thankfully the sun returned and play resumed.

Tennis enthusiasts who missed the event should plan on joining next year.
