Challenger Banque Nationale
Rimouski, QC

Oct 28th - Nov 5th, 2006

I had the chance of being selected to be part of the crew of Line Umpires for an ATP Challenger Tournament that took place in Rimouski, QC. The tournament actually selected 3 Line Umpires from BC, and the other two are Stephen (who took all these photos), and Godwin.

Overall, the week was a lot of work, a bit stressful at times, but still a lot of fun. Obviously, everyone helping one way or another is a tennis fan. So the Line Umpire team tried to play after the matches were completed...

Below are some of the pictures that Stephen took during one of the two times I played tennis with some other officials. Jacques, the president of the tennis club hosting the event also joined us. All pictures are available either in tar or zip formats. Also available is a tar archive of the original pictures, before being reworked (these are actually the same). Note that the tarballs contain all the pictures I took, not just the ones I present on this page.

The pictures

The tennis club treated the players and the officials to a local Junior Hockey game. It was a lot of fun!
