Salmon Arm Tennis Club Hosts Successful Provincial Tournament – ​​Salmon Arm Observer


The Salmon Arm Tennis Club hosted over 200 players for the 2022 SASCU Open.

Held over Labor Day weekend, the Open was the club’s second provincial tournament in the past two months, attracting players not only from British Columbia, but also from Alberta and as far away as Mexico.

Local highlights include Salmon Arm’s Debbie Harrison on the winning side in the Women’s Doubles B and Mixed Doubles B events; Ken Hecker (Salmon Arm) and John Lapointe (Mexico) winning the men’s 65m doubles event in a rematch of their round robin match against Don Ross and Andrew Galecki (both of Salmon Arm); and Shannon Hecker battling valiantly in a well-played Women’s B singles final.

Part of the event’s success was the opportunity it gave visiting players to see and play at the city’s indoor tennis facilities. Tournament director Winston Pain said the event drew rave reviews for what the Salmon Arm Tennis Club and the community were able to accomplish.
