Atlantic Tennis Centre Confirmed
Atlantic Canada is getting itself a new sporting complex in Nova Scotia, Bedford. The small town in the Eastern Province took advantage of the current tennis scene in Canada. The Chairman of the Atlantic Tennis Centre and International Tennis Federation spoke with local government officials to convince them to allow for a massive indoor tennis complex in Bedford. After considerable deliberation, it has finally been confirmed that this proposed sporting complex has been approved and will be built within the next two years. It will be a state-of-the-art facility that caters to all levels of tennis.
Nova Scotia has had multiple new gymnasiums and sporting complex’s built-in Halifax to accommodate various sports, such as Hockey. However, all facilities for tennis haven’t been upgraded in nearly a hundred years. The most recent improvement to a professional tennis facility in Nova Scotia was the Halifax Common Tennis Courts, which got resurfaced for the first time since the 1960s. Another example is that the current Atlantic Tennis Centre is maintained at the Bedford Commons on a six-court dome beside Canadian Tire. It will cost the Atlantic Canada Tennis Association $11 Million to develop this sports complex, which is being funded through a capital campaign. Those wanting to donate can go through their local municipal or federal government donation sites.
The upgraded and new Atlantic Canada Tennis Facility will manage eighteen courts. Twelve of those courts will be located inside, with the additional six designed outside the new complex building. Atlantic Canada Tennis Centre hopes that their new facility will be opened by May 2020, but an impending horrendous winter for all of Canada will push back development schedules. Subsequently, Tennis players in Nova Scotia can anticipate the facility to be opened by Mid-Summer 2020.
