A quartet of Brampton tennis courts have a new makeover thanks to a $3-million revitalization program.

The tennis courts at Brampton’s Morris Kerbel Park are the first in Canada to receive funding for improvements through the Play Your Court Program, which is a partnership between Tennis Canada and National Bank.

With a goal of over 100 revitalised courts by 2030, Tennis Canada says the program is aimed at promoting the positive social impact of tennis and helping make the sport even more accessible to Canadians.

The Brampton revitalization comprises four courts and serves as the model for the program, which will offer similar grants to two projects in 2023.

“We’re convinced that providing an inviting environment will also encourage many new players to take up the sport and enjoy its benefits,” said Jean-François Hanczakowski, senior vice president of client experience and digital at National Bank.

Play Your Court is part of a 10-year partnership between Tennis Canada and National Bank, and Brampton is the first community to receive revitalised tennis courts through the $3-million fund.

Municipalities are encouraged and welcome to apply for funding through Tennis Canada.
