The weather may say otherwise, but today, June 20 is officially the last day of spring. Montreal is hot and sunny and there’s a bunch of fun things happening around our beautiful city for you to check out.
Smash is one of the few facilities in Quebec and the only of its kind in Montreal, where children have access to equipment and tennis courts built specifically to their size.
It’s mini-tennis court so kids can hone their skills without having to deal with adult dimensions.
It’s open to everybody from any (or no) tennis background.
When: From now until October
Time: 7 am – 8 pm
Where: Parc Olympique, 4141 Pierre-de-Coubertin Avenue
Shane Murphy is one of the best musicians in Montreal. He’s appeared at Jazz Fest and Osheaga and does his regular Wednesday gig every week at Honey Pub in NDG.
