Summer Tennis Lessons for Addiction Recovery Clients in Penticton – Penticton Western News

Published

on


Every Wednesday from now through the end of the summer, customers of Penticton’s Discovery House will have the chance to hit the tennis courts and compete with some of the city’s best players.

Zach Laycock, director of the Penticton Tennis Club, now offers free weekly classes for people staying at the addiction treatment center.

The announcement comes after the third annual Discovery House Tennis Event on June 22, where downtown customers were joined by members of the city’s sports club, along with Coun. James Miller, for an evening on the track.

“It’s a very important program that I started three years ago to give the opportunity to play and learn tennis with the gentlemen of the Discovery House,” said Laycock.

As for the upcoming summer classes, the customers of the center will participate in exercises and games every Wednesday for a few hours until September.

However, it’s not just those staying at Discovery House who are welcome to get in on the action. A Pentictonite born and bred, Laycock hopes the program will also help addiction recovery clients reunite with family members.

“This is also for the families,” he said. “If people want to take their kids and spend valuable time with them on the field, that’s great.”

The summer program was inspired by the story of Gord Portman, one of Laycock’s best friends growing up and someone who was homeless and addicted for years.

Portman, who was recently clean for two years, was motivated to get sober after he heroically intervened in a Penticton house fire that saved two lives.

“He’s the main reason I started this three years ago,” Laycock said. “I want to give back to the community and do it for Gord, but also for everyone at Discovery House.

“Real friendships have been formed.”

Lessons take place at the Penticton Tennis Club on Marina Way.
