What a night it was. The kids were all excited for the tournament and couldn't wait to play. We managed to get the U8 matches completed but dark set in for the U10 group and we will have to complete their matches next Wednesday September 17th. I was very proud at how the kids played, scored their matches and competed with amazing sportsmanship. What a remarkable group of kids!
Congratulations to Steve the champion of the U8 boys who played so well with amazing concentration and good sportsmanship. Logan was the finalist who just beat out Ali who also played so well. The matches were so close.
The U8 girls champion goes to Katana who played so well and was so enthusiastic in all her matches. She really moved the ball around the court well. The finalist award went to Marianne who played with great determination.
All participants went home with a Rogers Rookie Tour gift pack, and a fancy ribbon for the amazing participation. It was an amazing night and we look forward to announcing the winners of the U10 group next week.
Congratulations to all the kids who competed, for their dedication and commitment to the tennis program and the volunteers Ash, Mark, Stephane and Alex who helped score the matches. We couldn't do this without you!
