Still nothing beats seeing it live right from home court. Such was the case last week as the 10th Annual Odlum Brown Van Open Tennis tournament took place at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club. An elegant opening night reception was held on the club’s sun filled patio deck to welcome dignitaries and VIPs. Hosted by Floyd R. Hill, the evening also included the opening ceremonies court side, opening round matches and a special appearance by tennis great Martina Hingis.
