It’s one of the biggest sporting events of the summer for West Vancouver. The Odlum Brown Van Open tennis tournament, presented by Invesco, took place last week at Hollyburn Country Club. And while the action on the courts is always top notch, so are the people that help put it all together. Sitting in the sun and taking in a game couldn’t be better in this picturesque environment and opening night proved to be all that and more. The welcome reception, hosted by by Floyd R. Hill, was held on the patio where invited guests and VIPs got a chance to mix and mingle before heading court side for the opening ceremonies which included extra entertainment and performances. Congrats to all involved.
