Year-round covered tennis courts coming to Mississauga

Today, the City of Mississauga broke ground on the new year-round covered tennis and pickleball courts in the city, located at Churchill Meadows Community Centre and Mattamy Sports Park.

The courts are made possible through a partnership between the City and Premier Racquet Clubs including $200,000 in funding from Tennis Canada and Rogers Communications as part of the Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program.

The new facility will be located at Mattamy Sports Park, adjacent to Churchill Meadows Community Centre, and features a six-court, air-supported dome facility that will:

  • create an additional 400 hours of court time per week during the winter months
  • serve the needs of recreational and competitive players in the community
  • provide opportunities to host provincial, national and international events
  • include drop-in and structured play, lessons and camp programming for children and youth

The facility and programming will be operated in partnership with Premier Racquet Clubs – Mississauga.

“We are really excited to have been selected for funding via the Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program. Thank you to Rogers and Tennis Canada for their support. We cannot wait to see this project come to life and to bring year-round tennis to the Mississauga community.” 

Karl Hale, CEO, Premier Racquet Clubs – Mississauga

The courts are expected to open later this year.

About Tennis Canada’s Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program

With the aim of building 160 new year-round courts at up to 30 facilities across Canada by 2029, the $5.6 million Year-Round Community Tennis Courts Program, jointly funded by Tennis Canada and Rogers, will make year-round tennis a reality for Canadians across the country, increasing accessibility to the sport and helping to foster increased participation among youth. The program was initiated to address the fact that, at the time of its inception, 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, representing only one year-round court for every 50,000 people. For each project, Tennis Canada and Rogers provide up to $200,000 in seed money.

“This is an exciting time for tennis enthusiasts in and around Mississauga. As part of the City’s commitment to keeping our community active by providing them with the sports amenities they need, this facility will serve the needs of both recreational and competitive players, and also provide opportunities for hosting provincial, national and international sporting events in Mississauga. We can’t wait to see these courts come to life and offer racquet-based sports for the community to enjoy all year long.”

Jodi Robillos, Commissioner, Community Services
