Court Repairs Update

The city continues to conduct preparatory work on the courts in anticipation of the rebuild that is scheduled for October/November 2022. You may periodically see heavy machinery on the court as this work is completed. Unfortunately, the city does not give the club much notice for these types of activities, and requires us to grant them access to the courts with little notice. 

Most recently, the city brought in boring machines and dug holes in the courts for a geotech survey. In addition to this, we are in the midst of conducting arborist reports. This work is anticipated to be done by the end of June at which point the rebuild will go out to tender.

The city has been informed about the fallen trees behind the court and will be cutting down the branches around the court light switch, and inquiries have been made into getting the picnic tables delivered. The club tent is also scheduled to be set up in the next couple of weeks.
