Resurfaced Courts at OTLBC for 2019! Club restoration campaign and update!
For the 2019 season, the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC) will resurface (laser-graded) 14 of its 18 Har-Tru courts and install LED lights on courts 17 and 18. The project also includes new drainage and irrigation systems, and represents the largest investment in tennis infrastructure in club history. The result will be better playing conditions and increased court availability, with 14 courts lit for night play. The performance of the new lights will be monitored closely and inform the OTLBC’s choice of fixture when it replaces all existing court lights in the fall of 2019. The upgrades bolster the OTLBC’s reputation as the best tennis facility in the National Capital Region. Join us! As the largest club in Ottawa, and the host for many years of the City Championships, as well as other large scale tournaments both locally and nationally, we need your help and support! Both initiatives will positively impact the tennis community in Ottawa and will contribute to successful hosting of a variety of provincial, national and local tournaments and events and promoting competitive opportunities for juniors and adults alike.
