Late July, 28 enthusiastic and talented tennis players met for the Lake Country Tennis Mixed Doubles Tournament on at the Woodsdale tennis courts.

At the end of the day,  Sunday July 28, Darlene Homenchuk and Daryl Harrison emerged victorious 6-4 over Kathy Walraven and Dave Valouch.

Everyone stayed at the end to cheer the finalists on.

Many thanks to Shannon for providing such a great luncheon and snacks throughout the day that was enjoyed by all.
