Marian Shoemaker and Friedl Brudermann were winners of Suncoast Racquet Club's Brudermann Cup, a fun annual competition that takes place at the two-court indoor club. 

Once again friends gathered on the courts of the Suncoast Racquet Club during the Jan. 18th weekend to take part in the popular Brudermann Cup.

The annual event pays tribute to Friedl Brudermann, who was chairman of the elected board during the building of the two-court indoor tennis club.

A fun format saw 16 participants compete and enjoy a barbecue lunch. When all the players had rotated and all the balls were hit, Brudermann and Marian Shoemaker defeated Tammy Klashinsky and Don Walters in the finals.

Semifinal play included rousing rallies by teams made up of Laurie Reid, Dave Stamper, Al Karapita and Heinz Tigges.

The Suncoast Racquet Club provides tennis for members as well as community and school programs. Lessons may be booked, public play is available at designated times and new members are welcome. For information call 604-885-7770 or visit the website at
