Thanks to resurgent interest in the sport, tennis courts in Sarnia about to get some love.
City hall is about to spend $79,000 on court resurfacing and line painting, starting in Germain Park and Cathcart Park.
The four playing surfaces at Germain have the highest rate of public usage, and are used by the Strangway Centre’s programs and tennis club.
The two playing surfaces at 1399 Cathcart Blvd. are also well used by players, including some from city programs.
Both facilities will be lined for tennis and pickle ball, another net sports rapidly growing in popularity.
Nine city parks are home to tennis courts, and all were deemed in “fair to poor” condition in a recent assessment by parks and rec staff.
