The city of Cold Lake will see its first ever tennis festival on July 8th.
The city has partnered up with the local tennis community along with Tennis Alberta and their partner PlayCity to put the event on from 10 to 2 at Ivan Krook Sr. Memorial Park. The festival is meant to celebrate the Davis Cup Tennis playoff, Canada vs India, taking place in Edmonton this September.
The City of Cold Lake will open the Festival with a ribbon cutting dedication opening the new courts. There will be prizes, a photo prop area for taking pictures and a logo judging contest and more.
Junior players will be able to enter a mini Davis Cup team competition, while adults will have a sampler of the Tennis Xpress program that will run over 6 weeks on the newly resurfaced Cold Lake tennis courts.
The afternoon will conclude with a one-point eliminator event where everyone will have a chance to play a point for a chance to win a prize.
Participants in the event are encouraged to show their colors of red and white in support of Canada’s men’s team.
