Team Tennis has begun in Salmon Arm!

The Salmon Arm Tennis Club has two men’s teams and one ladies’ team competing in the Interior this spring/summer with a view to qualifying for the 2015 Provincial Miele Team Championships which will take place in Kelowna Aug. 15/16.

Last year, the Ladies’ Team (Loree Boyd, Marietjie du Plessis, Shirley Knorr, Cynthia Langford and Marianne VanBuskirk) won the 2014 Provincials in Whistler.

The Salmon Arm ladies will be looking to defend their title.

On Sunday, June 7, the ladies team of Boyd, du Plessis, Shannon Hecker, Langford and VanBuskirk won the first qualifier for the Provincials (they will play one more in Summerland on July 12.)

Sunday’s match was against Summerland right here in Salmon Arm in the exhausting heat, with the tennis courts registering at least 39 C.

The three matches played were all taken by Salmon Arm so the score leading up to the Provincials is 3-0 for Salmon Arm.

Individual matches were as follows:

Team Slammin’ Arm over Team Summerland:

Doubles:  Boyd and VanBuskirk won 6-2, 6-3

Doubles: Langford and Hecker won 6-4, 7-5

Singles:  du Plessis won 6-3, 7-6 (10-8 tiebreaker).
