Tennis has begun in Calgary and the Osten and Victor Tennis Centre is seeing new people give the racket a swing.
The 8 indoor hard courts and 5 outdoor clay courts give Calgarians the chance to get out and be active, and it’s also a great way to stay safe, and in shape this summer.
Tennis Director Charlie McLean talks about the perks of the sport, “From what we hear from parents and kids, is that there is no contact.. very social.. and you can always play tennis no matter where you go.”
There are a wide variety of programs catering to everyone from four years old just starting out to people in their 80’s.
General Manager Danny Da Costa says they already have 400 kids in their junior program and they keep growing every day.
Their biggest event of the year will be June 3rd-10th where kids from all over the world will showcase their talents.
