Ice Breaker postponed

Nasty weather on the May 3-4 weekend caused the Merritt and District Tennis Club to postpone the mixed doubles portion of its annual kickoff Ice Breaker tournament.

Tennis aficionados will still have a chance to play in mixed doubles action on the courts at the golf course on Saturday, May 17.

The ladies doubles part of the Ice Breaker was cancelled because there were no participants.

Organizers with the tennis club are hoping for more interest and less rain and wind on the new date.

Sign-up is at 9:30 a.m. and play gets underway at 10 a.m.
