Tony Sekvenc, a member of Davisville Tennis Club for more than 40 years, became a fixture at the club. His love for tennis was intense. He could be seen on-court at the club hitting for hours every day, playing the sport he loved, and additional hours off-court, on the hill or by the tag board, talking about the sport he loved. He played in good weather, he played in bad. I don't think Tony thought a day was complete without some tennis in it.

The weather cooperated and we had a smooth and fun day to kick off our season. With activities registration, a round robin, a smash cage, the first of our barbecues, tag-up play, newcomer orientations and ratings, and our evening Opening Day party, we could not have had a grander start to the season! Here are a few photos that capture some moments of the day.
After a great volunteer turnout for Prep Day, we are ready to roll out the 2019 outdoor season!
So please come out this Saturday (April 13) for OPENING DAY!
Starting at 10 a.m., we have a full day and evening of activities planned for you, including registration for House League, Social Tennis and singles ladders, round robin play, a smash cage to test your serve, orientation and ratings sessions for newcomers, information on Davisville Cup and an effort to honour a special DTC member we lost last year, our famous barbecue lunch and our evening Opening Day Party!(more…)
We had a record turnout of more than 40 DTC volunteers on Prep Day! With brooms and mops, rakes and leaf blowers, ladders and ties, sponges and bags, and a lot of tough manual labour, this hardy band of DTC members cleaned up the clubhouse, courthouse, courts and surroundings, erected our windscreens and nets, and put the club in shape for a fantastic 2019 season.The reward: Pizza for lunch! A big thanks to all members who came out to help!
Registration is now open for tryouts for those interested in playing on Davisville’s competitive teams this summer. We will field three evening Intercounty teams: one Majors and two at the A level. We will also field a TLTL ladies daytime team, and we are excited to announce that we will also have a NEW Intercounty daytime mixed +55 team! Here is information about the tryout dates and registration deadlines.

From all of us at Davisville: Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Until we start talking about Opening Day for the 2019 season, we will continue to focus our attention on Winter Tennis events, which have been extremely well-attended and provided tons of fun for players on and off the courts. In fact, demand has been so high that we have great news: We have added a couple more dates, notably Feb. 9 and March 23, and managed to secure six courts for these events at Mayfair West! The rest of our winter schedule will continue as already planned, with…
