Smashing reviews for new state-of-the art tennis centre in Calgary
06-08-2016After a decade-long process, the Osten and Victor Alberta Tennis Centre is open in Calgary. The 13-court facility will redefine the standard for major tennis facilities across Canada.
"When you see all these wonderful kids out on the court playing, that's what it's all about. It's open to the public, it's non-profit, it's a facility that will be great for Calgarians for generations to come."
Kevin Smith reports from Global News http://globalnews.ca/news/2749662/smashing-reviews-for-new-state-of-the-art-tennis-centre-in-calgary/?sf28262126=1
Soon-to-open Osten & Victor Alberta Tennis Centre should make Calgary Western Canada hub for junior tennis
06-08-2016?Tennis is now the fastest growing of the traditional sports in Canada,? said board vice-chair Glen Scott, who is also past president of Tennis Alberta.
?We want to make this the most technologically enabled tennis centre in North America and my personal opinion is it will be housing the best young players in the west. But equally as important, we want to give Albertans a place to play.?
