Tennis court grant to go ahead

Golden's grant application to have the tennis courts resurfaced has proven successful.

Golden’s grant application to have the tennis courts resurfaced has proven successful, with Columbia Basin Trust announcing that the Town’s application will go forward.

“The project includes filling cracks and re-levelling the surface to reduce or eliminate surface water ponding, plus applying an enhanced non-slip surface with vibrant new colour,” said Mayor Ron Oszust. “Our goal is to make the tennis courts safer and more enjoyable, extending their life while enticing people to use them more often.”

The estimated cost of the work is $50,000, with CBT covering up to 70 per cent of the final total and the Town chipping in the remaining 30 per cent.

The grant comes through the Columbia Basin Trust’s Recreation Infrastructure grant program, which accepted its first intake this spring.

The second round of applications are due in July.
