Able to withstand his opponents and the extreme on-court heat, Harmeet Gill prevailed to win the A division of the Penticton Tennis Club Summer Clash tournament.

Entries were limited to 16 players from the PCT men’s singles division to allow the event to be held during a single day.

Each man played at least three sets, plus the finals.

“Everyone tested their fitness limits under the extreme heat of the courts,” said tourney organizer Steve Mckenzie.

“We have some great players at the club, including some great younger players, that put on a great show.  

“There were a lot of excellent matches down to the wire and some upsets we didn’t see coming.”

A similar tournament is in the works for September.

Summer Clash sponsors in­cluded Sportchek, Highway 97 Brewing and Moon Curser Winery.
