Rajsic tourney raises funds


The first annual Rajsic Classic Tennis Tournament saw a large turn-out while paying tribute to long-time Salt Spring Tennis Association member Roy Rajsic, who died last year.
As reported by tournament director Pete Schelling, 54 doubles teams competed in the combined-age round-robin doubles tournament held on the May long weekend. Categories included ladies, men’s and mixed doubles in combined ages of 80, 100, 120 and 140 age groups. Players came from Vancouver, Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island.
All monies raised from the event — almost $2,000 — went to the SSTA’s Tomorrow’s Champions junior program.
