Kids love tennis, kick up a racquet as Tofino holds Try It Day

Tofino Parks and Recreation teamed up with Tennis BC to offer a Tennis Try It Day for students in Wickaninnish Elementary and Ucluelet Elementary School. Tennis BC instructor, Jeannie Rohr, led students in a progressive tennis clinic, using modified equipment to teach the fundamentals of the sport. The clinics were funded through the ViaSport British Columbia “Local Sport Development Fund”, which

Tofino Parks and Recreation was recently successful in receiving a grant from. Coach Jeannie Rohr also hosted evening youth and adult tennis clinics, which were well attended by 22 local tennis enthusiasts! Tofino Parks and Recreation would like to thank

Jamie’s Rainforest Inn for donating accommodation for Coach Jeannie Rohr. We would also like to thank Tennis BC for their support in expanding tennis in our community. Parks and Recreation staff will be starting a free tennis program for children in Tofino on Thursday afternoons, starting May 15th. Interested participants can contact recreation@tofino.ca for more information.

Thanks to Wickaninnish Elementary School and Ucluelet Elementary

School for hosting us and to all of the keen student participants!
