2 Grass Court Tournaments Near Victoria, Canada
1877 - The All England Croquet Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon - now accommodating the new game of tennis - changes its name to The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
1887 - The South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club - now in continuous operation for 123 years - opens near Victoria, Canada.

There are very few grass court tennis clubs left in the world. Here are two chances to play in a grass court tennis tournament:
Grass Court Classic - July 1st - 4th: Sanctioned by Tennis BC, 35+ events
Vancouver Island Grass Court Championships - July 24th - 31st: Sanctioned by the ITF, 35+ events

The South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club is located a truly beautiful 45-minute drive from Victoria, BC in Vancouver Island's coastal wine region.

Players return year after year because these tournaments are a perfect blend of a relaxed atmosphere at a friendly, volunteer-run club and a competitive, well-run event.

Summer on Vancouver Island offers some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere on earth.

It's affordable and you are guaranteed to have a great time. You can't help but enjoy the experience of playing on grass. And you may even find yourself across the net from world No. 1 Alan Rasmussen from Denmark. The best 55 year old player in the world played at Cowichan last year.
