Trio of new tennis courts unveiled in Summerland

Tennis enjoyers in Summerland and the surrounding area have a new playing surface to compete on thanks to a partnership between the municipality and the local school district.

The three new courts are the result of the area being identified as “relatively under-served” in the 2022-26 Summerland Parks & Recreation Master Plan when it came to public tennis courts.

While looking for an opportunity to improve local courts, the District of Summerland reached out to School District 67 to explore a partnership in restoring Summerland Secondary School’s courts that had fallen into disrepair.

“From the building of the Aquatic Centre almost 40 years ago to the recent opening of a new skate park, Summerland council and the local school board have a long history of working cooperatively for the benefit of the community,” said Mayor Doug Holmes.

At a budget of $301,000, the old courts were removed and a new foundation, nets, fencing and three courts were built.

The courts are available for school and community use and two post sleeves were installed for the potential addition of basketball hoops.

The District allocated $201,000 from the federal community works fund for the project.
