Tennis Alberta is pleased to announce that the following athletes have been selected to represent Alberta at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. The games will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba July 28 – August 13, 2017. Tennis has been scheduled for the second week of the games (August 5-13) and will be held at the Winnipeg Lawn Tennis Club.
Tennis Alberta recognizes the level of commitment and hours of hard work these athletes have devoted to developing themselves into well rounded high performance athletes. We are very excited for these athletes and we would like to wish them all the best at the Canada Summer Games.
The games which are held every two years and alternate between summer and winter provide athletes the opportunity to compete in interprovincial/territorial competition on a national stage. The Canada Summer Games has been a catalyst for developing top tier athletes and providing substantial sports growth across Canada.
