Each year we also host a special B.C. wide event called the Rix Rookie Tour. 2008 was our fifth season. The Rogers Rookie Tour is a non-elimination event for both boys and girls ages 8-14 years. This is fun way to introduce competitve play to recreational players in a tournament style environment. It reaches hundreds of junior players each summer in locations across BC in May through September.

Players are ensured of multiple matches and receive a Rix Rookie Tour shirt at each event. The Under-10 (U10) division play is often held on 3/4 court with “winners” balls, which are 1/2 the pressure of a regular ball to ensure longer rallies. The Under-12 (U12) and Under-14 (U14) divisions are played on full court with “E-Z play” balls that are 3/4 the pressure of a regular ball. These fun events do not count for provincial rankings.
