Welcome to the Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program presented by Rogers
Funded jointly by Tennis Canada and Rogers, the $5.6 million program will make year-round tennis a reality for thousands of Canadians and help foster increased participation amongst youth with the aim of building 160 year-round courts at up to 30 facilities by 2029. For each project, Rogers generously provides $200,000 of seed money.
The investment addresses the fact that, when the program initially launched, Canada fell behind other leading tennis nations in providing access to the sport 12 months a year, with only 750 publicly accessible covered courts across the country. That’s just one year-round court for every 50,000 people.
THE IMPACT OF THE PROGRAM IS ALREADY BEING FELT IN COMMUNITIES ACROSS CANADA
Momentum for the Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program continues to grow, with 90% of Canadians agreeing that municipalities should work with Tennis Canada on the initiative. To learn more about bringing year-round tennis to your community contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
