4 Courts under an all-season dome the vision
The Port Hope Racquet Club (PHRC), ACE Tennis and the Municipality of Port Hope are delighted to announce an initiative to expand the Municipality’s current tennis facilities and install a 4-court dome during the fall and winter months.
Tuesday November 7th, Council ratified a motion to approve the project moving forward. This approval allows for important next steps in the project, including site plan review and geotechnical work.
There is currently no access to a dedicated indoor tennis facility in the Northumberland, Peterborough and Quinte regions and the courts are easily accessed from the 401 corridor. “Along with making year-round tennis available to the existing players in the region,this dome widens access to the sport at all levels and opens up new, affordable options for families who are looking for winter activities,” notes Julia Snoek, Director of Parks, Recreation and Culture for the Municipality of Port Hope.
The PHRC has launched a fundraising campaign to build a fourth tennis court and retrofit the dome over its existing tennis courts, as well as the related capital costs.
