Brandon, MB – City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services is pleased to announce the completion of a pair of recreational court resurfacing projects, with plenty of time still left in the season for enthusiasts to get a few good matches in before any winter snow flies!
Responding to overwhelming demand from the community, the former tennis courts at Stanley Park have been resurfaced to create six new pickleball courts near the corner of 15th Street & Lorne Avenue. This paddleball sport combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis and is rapidly gaining in popularity amongst Brandon residents as a sport for people of all ages. These pickleball courts have been very popular since their opening in early September are available free to the community on a first-come, first-served basis.
This past weekend, the four tennis courts at the Wheat City Golf Course, located at 3500 McDonald Avenue, re-opened following resurfacing improvements. Information on how to book the courts can be found online here or by calling the Wheat City Golf Course Pro Shop at 204-728-2299. Four tennis courts are also available for free public use in Queen Elizabeth Park on a first-come, first-served basis and can be accessed just north of the intersection of 26th Street and McDonald Avenue.
