Friendly (no-pro-shots) Tennis in Deep Cove - Cates Park


"Non-combat" tennis lobbers and volleyers for friendly hits at one of the most beautifully secluded and unknown wonders (shhhhhh!!) in Metro Vancouver. Cates Park. Look it up, overhead, from Google Maps.

Let's play if weather is nice only.

The courts are correctly oriented in respect to sunset and is surrounded by tall trees that protect the court from crosswind.

It is almost as good as the courts at the legendary Lorne Park tennis club in Mississauga. The surface is quick-dry, but with a reasonably small pebbling, unlike the one near Second Narrows Bridge.

Very few people play at these great courts.

We had great fun at the earlier meetup -- here's the link to photos and post-play comments.

No "hard hitting" please!   Bring your fave courtside jests instead.

    Hey Rob,

    I'm feeling this heat and not so much into tennis tonight. Plus I have a couple of little dogs coming to stay with me tonight earlier than I had planned. I hope you're okay that I skip tonight and make it next time. Wish we had some more people signing up as it's a great meet-up.

    Thanks, and see you soon!

    There were only three of us alas 2 people did not show up. We Played singles and doubles Or rather a single vs double

    When Robin and I are together in the tennis court There are more jokes Lobbed around then Tennis balls

    The third person was a university student who I was hoping could Get some business Specifically calculation of the elasticity of demand and supply tips from Robin As the student is a budding entrepreneur And a nice guy who I work for me once.

    Looks like Brenda has dropped off the meetup cliff, leaving us one player short of a foursome.

      Update: Andre and Robin will be coming, unless Robin's back is still hurting.
