Tennis, anyone?

Courts at Mount Baker Secondary School are being replaced in a partnership between School District 5 and the City of Cranbrook.

Crews were busy Tuesday digging out the foundation to replace tennis courts at Mount Baker Secondary School.

Work is underway to construct new tennis courts at Mount Baker Secondary School.

The $350,000 project is a collaboration between School District #5 and the City of Cranbrook, with a $50,000 grant from Columbia Basin Trust.

A geotechnical study was done on the site prior to work commencing, and drainage pipes will be installed beneath the asphalt.

“The last thing we want is a tennis court that’s going to heave and crack in a few years,” said Chris New, the city’s director of leisure services.

According to Rob Norum at SD5, the first phase of the project – ground work, asphalt surfacing and fencing – is expected to be complete by early October.

By the spring, the flex surface and lines for tennis will be finished.
