The wind howled through the courts and we all had coats on but it didn't dampen the spirits of those who came out to play. Teams were given the same coloured bandanas and the kids wore them on their sleeves with pride as they hit each ball with determination and amazing concentration. Three rounds were played in all age categories which were completed just as the rain began to fall.
Congratulations to the pink team in the U8 category of Katana and Mariam who were the champions and the blue team of Marianne and Kaycee who placed second. In the U10 category the green team of Isaak and Ruth Ann were champions with the white team of Eliza and Jaina coming second. In the teen division the blue team of Rachel and Caitlan were the champions and the brown team of Nji, Alejandro and Jousef were the runners up.
The team event was amazing in that the kids demonstrated a lot of team spirit and really played well together. I am so proud of how they played considering the elements were so windy and cool.
A special thank-you to Rachel, Eric and Mariym our terrific volunteers who helped score the matches and organize the teams.
