  • Mannings Wealth Management donates to buy racquets.

    Nelson Tennis Club is all about encouraging youth to be active and participate in sports—particularly tennis of course. Now the Club has been given a boost from a generous donation of more than $500 from Michelle and Ed Mannings of CIBC Wood Gundy.  The funds, along with a contribution from the Nelson Tennis Club, were used to purchase more than 50 junior racquets.

    “I cannot overstate how important it is for kids to be involved in sport,” says Michelle, who was on-hand to watch the very first day of the full Tennis Camp on July 5. “Not only for physical health, but for mental well-being and from a social perspective as well. We could not have put these funds to greater use.”

    The efforts from many quarters to encourage youth participation in tennis are paying off. Youth numbers have more than doubled at Nelson Tennis Club in the last three years. The purchase of the racquets has also enabled the Club to accommodate school groups and the coaches have been able to provide lessons to more than 150 school students, from nine classes from around School District #8.

    “It is exciting times at the Club, and the enthusiasm that the kids bring to the courts is fantastic to see,” says head coach, Matt Martin. “This donation has helped make that happen and I really want to thank CIBC Wood Gundy for the contribution. And you just never know—it may be the starting point of helping to launch the next Shapovalov, Andreescu or Auger Aliassime into the tennis world from the West Kootenay!”
