Tournaments

A warm welcome to a summer of tournament play at South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club, where the love for tennis converges with the beauty of tradition.

Nestled in a picturesque setting, our club takes pride in hosting three prestigious tournaments each year, including the longstanding Vancouver Island Grass Court Championship, celebrating its 137th year.

 

 

 


2024 Grass Court Classic - Friday, June 28 to Monday, July 1, 2024

Hosted by SCLTC annually for all Canadian players with a Tennis BC and other provincial tennis memberships. This is a sanctioned tournament by Tennis BC.

2024 Kay Wilson Memorial Mixed Compass Event - Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28, 2024

A very popular Kay Wilson Memorial Mixed Doubles Compass tournament is hosted annually, which brings out 32 on and off-island teams. This tournament is established in memory of Kay Wilson, a dedicated member of SCLTC and a former nationally ranked tennis player.

137th Vancouver Island Grass Court Championships - Wednesday, August 7 to Sunday, August 11, 2024

An annual tournament hosted by SCLTC since 1887. As one of the oldest continuously run tennis clubs in the world, this tournament predates Wimbledon because it has not stopped even during the wars. In 1994, this tournament won an award from the USTA for the “best run sanctioned tournament”. 

Looking ahead to 2024, this tournament is currently in the process of seeking  ITF sanctioning  as a Masters Tournament for over 30s.  It stands as a testament to the rich tradition of tennis and remains a focal point for tennis enthusiasts locally and beyond. 

Registration opens: TBD

(A full Tennis BC membership is necessary for registration. Once this event receives approval to become an ITF event, an ITF IPIN number will be necessary for registration. )
