Municipal Tennis and Pickleball Courts Open for the Season

Municipal tennis and pickleball courts are now open for the season.

“With ice now being removed at several Chatham-Kent arenas our parks and recreation staff have started preparations for the outdoor season,” said Ian Clark, Manager, Parks, Recreation and Cemeteries. “Members of the public will notice nets have been reinstalled at municipal sport courts.”

Courts are available to the public for casual use on a first-come-first-served basis except during posted times reserved for local clubs and schools.

Windscreening will also be installed at the new pickleball courts in Dresden, Blenheim, Wallaceburg, and Tilbury which were completed in late 2023.

The public are asked to help prevent damage to other sport grounds by staying off ball diamond infields and wet sport fields. Diamonds and fields are still being prepared for teams and leagues set to begin play in May.
