Serving up some winners
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The biggest tennis tournament in the NWT is set to take place this weekend in Yellowknife.
The Tennis NWT Open kicks off on Friday at the Yellowknife Tennis Club's home base at the McNiven Tennis Courts. It promises to be a big weekend with action happening in men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles.
The tournament serves as the territorial championship and there are cash prizes up for grabs for the champions and finalists in each division.
There's also a banquet dinner at the Yellowknife Golf Club on Saturday evening beginning at 7 p.m. which is open to everyone.
The mediocre carry on
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The 2017 Mediocre Golf Association season continues to roll on this weekend with the next tournament set for this Sunday at the Yellowknife Golf Club.
It's called simply The MGA, a play on the PGA Championship, one of the major tournaments on the professional golf calendar. Everything begins on Sunday at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start, meaning every player will tee off from a pre-determined hole and play their 18-hole round.
As is the tradition of the association, the winner will receive a first prize of $1.26.
