Brentwood Bay teen plays well at tennis nationals

A local Saanich Peninsula teen saw his hard work come to fruition this month

Brentwood Bay teen Aaron Diemer competed in the Under 14 Indoor Rogers Junior National Tennis Championships.

A local Saanich Peninsula teen saw his hard work come to fruition this month as he placed better than expected in the Under 14 Indoor Rogers Junior National Tennis Championships.

Aaron Diemer, who trains out of Panorama Recreation Centre with his father and coach, Greg Diemer, won three out of seven matches and placed 27th out of 40 overall in singles at the event held April 1 through 7 in West Vancouver.

In doubles, Diemer and his partner Owen Stinson tied for fifth overall.

“This being Aaron’s first nationals, it was really nice to at least have four matches that he was able to play in,” said Greg after explaining the structure of the matches.

“It took a couple of tries to get his bearings but the results were beyond our expectations.

“We were really happy because we were hoping he would win one match, but to win [more] was great.”

Greg coaches Aaron and a handful of other junior players at Panorama with the help of Eric Knoester (Racquet Sports Coordinator for Panorama) and credits the group working together for Aaron’s latest successes.

“It’s nice how they’ve all come together,” said Greg.

“They push each other really hard and they’ve been a really good group to work with.”

Aaron was also recently been asked to participate in the provincial development team on the North Shore.
