Our Skyhawks A Team got off to a strong start in the North South League by getting a win over Orangeville. In their first match of the season, the Skyhawks got off to a tough start, going down 2-1 after doubles with our lone point coming from Graham and Wilson in line three.
Last night was our first ever "Learn from the Skyhawks" and it was a great success! Our junior competitive team, the Skyhawks, became coaches for the night and gave lessons to raise money for their upcoming competitive season. They must have done a good job because they raised $1000! Thank you to everyone who came out to support. An extra special thank you goes to Greg Jedrzejewski, our 50/50 raffle winner who donated his winnings right back to the Skyhawks!
Help out our Skyhawks by participating in our Steeped Tea Fundraiser! Steeped Tea is a Canadian company started eight years ago, and since being on Dragon's Den in 2012 has expanded and become one of the fastest growing companies in Canada and has even expanded into the US! Not only is the tea delicious (hot or cold), but it makes a great Christmas gift for loved ones.
The North South Junior League consists of both an Under 18 and Under 14 Division and a North and South Conference covering South Central Ontario. The inaugural season is the 2014-15 season.

It will be a night of great fun for the whole family, and any level of player is welcome, from the complete beginner to the advanced player! All of the proceeds will be going to support our Skyhawks and junior competitive tennis in Barrie!
A big congratulations goes out to Genevieve "Chippy Chip" Quenville who has made it into the girls U14 qualifying draw of the Eddie Herr!
