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.

Get your names in

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - NWT Soccer's annual awards won't be handed out until November but the nomination process to figure out who gets what is now open.
A total of seven awards will be presented by the association with honours going to the male and female athletes of the year, coach of the year, official of the year, sportsmanship, volunteer of the year and the Paul Stipdonk Memorial Life Member Award.
You have a bit of time to get your choices in as the deadline isn't until October.
