Attention Tennis & Squash Players

DRIVING ACCESS TO TENNIS FACILITY OPENS UP AGAIN WITH A NEW PATH TO FOLLOW

A recent drying period has allowed the maintenance department of the Golf Course to create a roadway to the tennis and squash facilities.

Although recent inclement weather conditions for the past several weeks have created frost upheaval resulting in extremely poor road conditions, the Golf Course employees have been able to create a driving path to the Tennis Facility.

The driveway areas between the cart sheds on the way to the parking lot for the tennis facility have become very soft and unstable. The maintenance department was able to create a single lane driving path for cars to drive on.
There is a distinct path to follow indicated by traffic direction cones. Please stay on this road in between the cones. Material has been used to help keep this roadway passable.

Salt Spring Tennis Association

The Salt Spring Tennis Association (SSTA) was established in 1979 to promote tennis on Salt Spring Island, BC and provide opportunities for tennis players to meet for healthy competition and social events.

In 2010, Tennis Canada chose Salt Spring Island as the 'Tennis Friendly Community of the Year' for the whole of Canada! The Association is a member of Tennis BC and operates a junior program during the summer.

Tennis is played year round on Salt Spring Island – weather permitting - on courts supplied by the Salt Spring Island Parks and Recreation Commission.

By agreement, the SSTA uses the courts at Portlock Park for league play, an inter-club program with off-island tennis clubs, drop-in sessions and tournaments. During these events, three courts are used, leaving one available for use by anyone.
