Oct 1, 2019 – Generous contributions and helping hands get the job done
The site is now a Multisport Complex with four tennis, and three pickleball courts,
basketball, ball hockey, and a skateboard area. There is also a kids’ play area and
an outdoor classroom. Washrooms, equipment storage, and a clubhouse to
come! Our goal is to get more youth involved in sports, develop junior programs,
and even establish a Tennis Academy led by our brilliant coach, Matt Martin, to
work with high performance youngsters.
On time, and on budget, the $300,000+ project was launched in April 2018 after
we partnered with the School District to revitalize the tennis court site. Besides
the School District, major funding was received from Columbia Basin Trust.
The Nelson Tennis Club was the project designer, proponent, and on-site
construction manager. The Club members made the project possible through
more than 1,800 hours of on-site volunteer work throughout the summer. We
also received generous contributions from local suppliers and contractors. Thank
