Group Spotlight: AWA Tennis
AWA Tennis is a welcoming group of women who aim to form strong relationships through learning and playing tennis. Anyone can participate, even if you’ve never held a racquet! AWA Tennis is a huge group within AWA, and we have activities that occur multiple times a week throughout the year, with the exception of June/July, when we take a bit of a break.
Our activities cover all levels. You can join our popular Tennis Clinics held at Savitar Tennis Centre if you’re keen to learn or improve your game. We offer Social Singles, Social Doubles, Evening Social Doubles, and Mixed Doubles events throughout the year where participants can make new friends while playing a few sets of tennis. We also have Team Tennis each December/January, where all players are organized evenly into teams to compete in a fun and social environment. Two competitive tournaments occur each year: The Doubles Plate for intermediate players and Doubles Cup for advanced players.
On the very social end of the spectrum, we have the popular Girls Night Out where we play silly games, have a costume contest based on a theme (last one was Mardi Gras), and socialize a bit over nibbles and bubbles. We’re also hosting an end of season party in May this year so that we can all get together off the court - will we even recognize one another without our tennis skirts and racquets?
