AGM & Opening Day
With Clean Up out of the way this is the official start to the outdoor season at Royal Roads. All members, are welcome to mix and play social tennis all day. Parking passes are also available for collection. All white attire is preferred (for this day only), if you have them. If the weather is nice, we will also fire up the BBQ and provide burgers and smokies!.
Contact: Any executive member
All skill levels are invited to share the wonderful social tennis experience with your club members. Players from both clubs are mixed and matched over four rounds of doubles play (mixed & men’s/ladies’) so that you are not playing with the same person all day. Meeting new players in a nice social atmosphere plus great food & drink has proven to be a successful formula for this club activity.
2021 Schedule: TBA
New Members Night
New Members are invited out to come and have a free BBQ Burger at this event! And of course, don't forget to bring your racket to play some tennis with other members after you have had your burger! See you on the courts!
