This past weekend (July 6-8) the Victoria Virtual Tennis Club (VVTC) held it's third annual mixed doubles tennis tournament on the courts of Victoria's Stadacona Park. This year the tournament was bigger than ever with 22 teams involved. Tom is the President of the fast growing VVTC and in addressing the post-tournament award ceremony in the Tartan Toque pub Tom noted that adults, just like children, need to play. For the many members of our club the name of our favourite way to play together is called TENNIS!
The big winners of the tournament were the brother and sister team of Oscar and Amelita. Oscar, in accepting the winners Cup (see picture) dedicated their victory to their late father, who spent long hours on the courts teaching the game to his children. Oscar related his father's advice on participating in tournaments; friendship comes first and winning second. 
Those wise words truly captured the spirit of this tournament. Hanging out on the sidelines, eating the good food we provided ourselves, enjoying the good weather, watching excellent tennis, and getting to know each other better (or for the first time), were as much highlights as the hard fought tennis matches we played.
