The Salmon Arm Tennis Club hosted their annual Snowball Tournament Oct. 27, capping off another season with some fun doubles play before the weather sends them packing.
In total, 18 club members competed in the tournament, which has a long history of 30 years within the tennis club. It came to a family showdown to decide the top spot, with parents Dan and Debbie Wark playing against siblings Susannah and Jackson Wark.
The agility of youth triumphed over the advantage of experience, with Jackson and Susannah besting their parents 6-4 and taking the win.
To get to the finals, the sibling duo had to face off against the championship team of Lisa-Marie and West Martin-Patterson, just edging out a victory in a 6-5 tie-breaker finish.
While it’s not looking like club’s new indoor tennis facility will be open for play before the snow hits, work continues on the project and the steel frame for the building is complete.
