City of Williams Lake Director of Community Services Geoff Paynton said that, as they have stated earlier, the courts had to be completely redone this year due to severe deterioration of the undersurface and surface.

“This is was mainly from age and natural processes,” he explained.

“Due to the scope of the work required we only have budget this year to do the restoration work and line painting on the asphalt.  Next year, budget dependant, we will hopefully be able to apply new sport surfacing on the courts.”

Putting down the new asphalt was delayed because of the long stretch of rainy weather, and finishing the line painting was delayed a week because of technical issues.

Paynton said that each tennis court will have both tennis and pickle ball lines when complete.
