The First Annual Rookie Tour, Fernie's first sanctioned tennis event, took place in James White Park on July 5, with 18 very keen entries. The Rogers Rookie Tour offers non elimination events for novice boys and girls ages U8-U16 years.This national program is designed to bridge the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial competitive junior circuit. The series reaches hundreds of junior players each year.
Players are ensured of multiple matches and receive a player package, including a Rookie Tour shirt at each event. Participation also provides a complimentary one year membership with Tennis BC. Events are held in locations across BC, March through November.
With a very successful event, great standard of play and wonderful sportsmanship from all players, coach Charlotte Willis is very proud to present this year's results.
