The Jack Fisher Annual Memorial Tournament is being held at 9:00am on May 28 at Portlock Park.
Last year’s Tomorrow’s Champions was a great success and provided funding for a new indoor junior tennis program on Salt Spring. Thirty one youngsters aged 5-13 participated in the after school program from September through March. The 2016 goal for the Tomorrow’s Champions event is to continue the program and include some off Island tournament play. For a photo gallery of last year's event, click here.

Salt Spring Tennis Association
The Salt Spring Tennis Association (SSTA) was established in 1979 to promote tennis on Salt Spring Island, BC and provide opportunities for tennis players to meet for healthy competition and social events.
In 2010, Tennis Canada chose Salt Spring Island as the 'Tennis Friendly Community of the Year' for the whole of Canada! The Association is a member of Tennis BC and operates a junior program during the summer.
Tennis is played year round on Salt Spring Island – weather permitting - on courts supplied by the Salt Spring Island Parks and Recreation Commission.
By agreement, the SSTA uses the courts at Portlock Park for league play, an inter-club program with off-island tennis clubs, drop-in sessions and tournaments. During these events, three courts are used, leaving one available for use by anyone.
