When looking at this view of Summerland in 1940, one of the first things that you probably notice is the large building with the tennis courts. The Summerland Athletic Club, originally incorporated in 1911 as the Summerland Lawn Tennis Club, built the hall and courts in 1934 with the help of volunteers. Though tennis eventually moved closer to the lake, the Badminton Hall is still home to plenty of action.
