Emphasizing the comeback which tennis, in company with many other sports expects to enjoy this year. Is the revival of the Southern Alberta tennis tournament to be played on local courts last week of July. Gordon Muttit was named chair- man of the tournament committee in charge of this event which before the war highlighted the tennis sea- son in the south. Because of the facili- ties available to Lethbridge youth in the past and the impossibility of many servicemen developing their game while in the forces, a num- ber of inexperienced players will be turning out this year, and to pro- vide adequate instruction the execu- tive is asking: all players who fes" thev are competent to aid beginners to make their services available srednesday and Saturday after- noons to those want help. Since the tennis courts are lo- cated on the grounds of the pro- posed civic centre artd the club has a vital interest in the development of that enterprise .President W Cousineau and Director D. Bro'wn- rigg were named a committee oi two to reoresent the tennis-playing portion of the community when plans are drafted.
