Tennis Canada on Thursday launched its “Own the National Bank Court” initiative, a grant program that will help municipalities across the country renovate their courts in the coming years.
An investment of $3 million has been made by National Bank, which has committed to revitalizing more than a hundred spaces by 2030. The first place to benefit will be Morris Kerbel Park , in Brampton, Ontario, which has four courts.
Other municipalities are invited to apply for grants starting in October. Tennis Canada will complete two more projects in 2023 and four per year between 2024 and 2030.
“Canadians of all ages and all levels of play should be able to go to a local park knowing that 'they will find a quality tennis court and a place where they can be active with their family and friends,' said Tennis Canada President Michael Downey in a press release.
Wednesday, the federal government had announced an investment of $20 million in the organization to ensure the future of the National Bank Open in Montreal and Toronto.
