Court is back in session

The Oak Bay tennis bubble is back in operation for tennis players.

The Oak Bay tennis bubble is back in operation for tennis players.

On Monday, Sept. 16, the popular recreation spot reopened after a new, high-reflective, insulated inner lining was installed.

“The tradition of providing top quality tennis programs since its inception in 1975 continues,” said Ed Bakker, tennis co-ordinator for Recreation Oak Bay. “The replacement of the bubble is perfect timing for the upcoming indoor season.”

The Oak Bay four court bubble – beside the neighbouring three court bubble – helps support a growing community of tennis players that now stands at 4,500 to 5,000 players regionwide. Through Recreation Oak Bay, the two bubbles and 14 outdoor courts help service the diverse needs of tennis players from age five and up to the 70-plus demographic.

“Programs are in place for children, teens and adults looking for beginner to advanced instructional programs, social programs or a little of both,” said Bakker.

“High intense drill sessions or just one-on-one privates lessons are also available.”

School tennis programs can also be accessed through Recreation Oak Bay. Call 250-595-7946 to reserve your time on the tennis court.
