Tennis and Racquet Sports Study
The ball is in your court!
The City is undertaking a Tennis and Racquet Sports Study to assess existing racquet sports courts, like tennis or pickleball, and assess community needs, to help the City respond to changing facility use and demand. Once complete, the study will help improve access and operations, including the number, location and types of facilities, and help the City recognize how to effectively meet the growing and changing needs and expectations of residents and community sports organizations, across Vaughan.
