Operating Season

The outdoor tennis/pickleball season generally runs from May to October, weather permitting.   

Please refer to the above table to confirm court locations and operating status. The status will be updated as courts become 'closed for the season' or 'open for the season'.  Most City-owned courts are fenced and locked during the off-season to prevent and reduce vandalism and damage.

When weather permits, outdoor courts may open for the season early. If the tennis nets are up and the gates are unlocked, the public is free to play. Rules and regulations are clearly posted on the fencing.

**Please note: With the exception of the courts at Father Basil Markle, Pickleball nets are not provided by the City. Users are welcome to bring their own nets for use and should be removed once play has concluded.

Casual Play

Casual tennis/pickleball play operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that all City-owned courts limit players to 30 minutes when people are waiting to play.

Booking Procedure

Please call Allocations at 306-975-3366 to book courts for a special event or a tournament.
