Tsawwassen Tennis Club will be hosting the seventh annual Bob Putnam Junior Challenger Tournament this weekend.
The Tennis B.C. sanctioned event annually attracts about 70 youth, competing in the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age categories.
"We're proud to have a Tennis B.C. tournament right here in Tsawwassen," says tournament director Paul Marsden. "It is a showcase of up-and-coming junior talent plus it's great tennis to watch."
Since the tournament is officially sanctioned by Tennis B.C., the results are counted toward each player's ranking.
"We hear from parents and kids every year that this is their favourite summer tournament," continued Marsden. "An army of club member volunteers help to ensure that both parents and participants enjoy the tournament."
The public is welcome to watch the juniors compete. Matches occur at the Tsawwassen Tennis Club (286 English Bluff Road) and at Brandrith Park on Saturday and Sunday.
