Interest was high, competition was tight, and out-of-town players almost outnumbered WTC players in the first annual Valley Open Tennis Tournament,  June 22-23, at the Wolfville tennis Club. 


Connor Balcom defeated Lars Kampe in the men's singles event, with Sid MacIsaac winning the consolation event over Peter Baldwin. Rachelle Samson defeated sister Denise Samson in the women's singles, while Beth McPhee defeated Nicole Kampe in the consolation side of the event.

The mixed doubles title was won by Diana and Peter Baldwin over Yunsong and Ying Cui. Lanying Zhao and Mark Steadman played Gordie Callan and Susan Webber for the consolation title.

Connor Balcome and Jun Song captured the men's doubles title over Mark Steadman and Sid MacIsaac, while Susan Webber and Barb Hughes captured the women's doubles after round robin competition.
