About

Tennis-Club6.jpg

The Honey Harbour Tennis Club is an autonomous club made up of members of the Honey Harbour Association. It offers tennis programs, tournaments, and social opportunities from May through October.

Our tennis courts continue to be in good condition following drainage improvements in 2011, resurfacing in 2012 and patching in 2017. We are in good shape for the next couple of years.

Our membership is sustained with about 50 active families. Drop in tennis continues to be popular on Monday and Friday mornings between 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon for pick-up games with a fun format.

During the week the courts are used by several different player groups.  Any member can come and play during those times. It’s a great opportunity to meet and play with a variety of members.

Our Round Robin events continue to be extremely popular.  Marilyn Weber and Judy Kovacs are responsible for organizing these events.  In July we had record attendance at the Round Robin and President’s social. In August we hosted a “Retro” tournament where everyone could show off their old tennis garb and gear. The tentative dates for the Round Robins (RR) in 2018 are:

  • July 7th RR at 1 pm and President’s Social to follow
  • August 11th AGM at  9 am with RR to follow at approximately 10 am
  • September 15th RR at 10 am

The Tennis Club hosts the annual Moonlight Madness dance in August and the 2017 event had record attendance and record fun times. Check the Calendar of Events to find the latest dates for the 2018 Round Robins and Moonlight Madness.

Our junior tennis program in cooperation with the Honey Harbour Day camp and was a huge success this year. Thanks to Coordinator Jill Hodgins Ukrainec and Instructor Andrew Ruth for arranging and conducting clinics.

The Tennis Club was fortunate to receive the donation of an Automated External Defibrillator. The AED has been mounted on the Schoolhouse and training has been conducted. Thanks to Ken Croney for the donation, although we hope it isn’t required.

The Tennis Executive would like to recognize Carolyn Heron for her dedication as President for the past seven years. Carolyn will continue to share her wisdom as Past President. 

We look forward to seeing everyone “On the Courts”.

Cheers,

Carrie Sullivan
President
