A number of city dignitaries took time out of their busy schedules to help the Richmond Tennis Club celebrate the holiday season with its annual Christmas Party.
Special guests included MPs Alice Wong and Joe Peschisolido, Mayor Malcolm Brodie and councillors Alexa Loo and Chak Au.
The Baseliners, a band made up of RTC members, provided the music while Farooq Rai performed Master of Ceremony duties. Members danced, noshed on a selection of appetizers and sang the occasional Christmas carol.
The highlight of the evening was a presentation made by RTC president Kim Jensen to Mayor Brodie — a former RTC member — for his continued support of tennis in Richmond.
The 60-plus-year-old club, located in Minoru Park off of Gilbert Road, offers year-round play with outdoor and indoor courts, plus clubhouse facilities. For more information visit www.richmondtennisclub.com.
