Last year’s Tomorrow’s Champions was a great success and provided funding for a new indoor junior tennis program on Salt Spring. Thirty one youngsters aged 5-13 participated in the after school program from September through March. The 2016 goal for the Tomorrow’s Champions event is to continue the program and include some off Island tournament play. For a photo gallery of last year's event, click here.
