Ready to serve, rain or shine!  As interest and participation in tennis continues to grow, Rogers, in partnership with Tennis Canada and local communities, announced plans earlier this year to invest in a covered courts program to help Canadians play tennis all year long.

Canada has only 750 accessible covered courts across the country, which represents one court for every 50,000 Canadians. Rogers’ support for the project, which aims to help build up to 160 covered courts at 28 facilities over the next seven years, will help more municipalities across Canada provide affordable and accessible year-round play on covered tennis courts in their communities.

With a focus on growing and developing grassroots tennis in communities large and small across Canada, these new covered courts will increase access to tennis.  And with year-round play, it will offer more opportunities to the next generation of high-performance athletes, as well as families looking for affordable recreational activities in their communities.
