Questions About Tennis in Maple Ridge

With Maple Ridge growing so quickly, the demand for court time on competition grade tennis courts is becoming a rare commodity. As a MRTC member, you have access to the courts during peak periods on the week and weekend. You also get to meet people and as anyone knows that plays tennis – hitting alone is no fun!
Yes, the general public can use the courts anytime outside of club hours or when we have tournaments. The municipality has allocated the MRTC special times in effort to build tennis as an important activity in our community.
As a BC government registered non-profit organization, all of the funds generated by membership fees are brought into the general revenues of the club and money and kept in the bank. Any money that is spent must be approved by the directors of the club. Some general expenses include BC Tennis Membership & liability insurance, equipment needed for Club use for the betterment of the facilities and its members and Club Staff paid positions.
Yes. And we definitely need help! A club is only as good as the membership and when a core group gets together to build something, it can move mountains! We always need help in areas such as staging events, junior/youth programs, putting up posters around town, calling other members and of course developing ideas on how to raise money! Even one hour a week could be tremendously helpful!
In addition to the lessons that we provide, the MRTC holds Club tournaments and sponsors events like The Rogers First Set Tour – Rookie.
We have five tournament grade tennis courts – built for the BC Games in 1998, lighting for evening play, lots of free parking, port-a-john and water fountain. The club owns benches, squeegees, and we have a member dedicated to ensuring the nets and courts are kept in good shape. We also arrange court cleaning, mosquito larva spraying and work with the City on all matters concerning tennis.
No – not after 5:30 pm. This court are reserved for adult play.
