James McCarthy | Wednesday, July 29, 2015 Off to Europe

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Polar United Club is on the road to Europe to begin its summer hockey tour. The team left on Saturday and the main part of the trip will be to play in a tournament in the Czech Republic beginning Aug. 6. Part of the tour will also include exhibition games against teams from Iceland, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary and Italy. See future editions of Yellowknifer for updates on their progress and results.

Qualify for nationals

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Golfers from around the city have the chance to represent the NWT at the Canadian Amateur Golf Championships next year as the Yellowknife Golf Club plays host to the NWT Canadian Amateur Championships Qualifier beginning on Friday. The territory is allowed to enter up to two men's and two women's players for the national event and it will run alongside the club's 54-Hole Stroke Play Tournament, which is also happening on the same weekend. Last year's NWT representatives were Ron Lafond and Stewart Gray, both from Yellowknife.

Hitting the court

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The NWT Open tennis tournament is gearing up to happen at the Yellowknife Tennis Club beginning on Saturday. There will be men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles as well as mixed doubles over the course of the weekend to determine the territorial champions for 2015. There won't be any junior divisions at the event but the NWT Junior Tennis Championships are scheduled to be held at the club on Aug. 7, just before the start of the Yellowknife Tennis Club Championships.
