Karen’s Story: Finding a Welcoming & Convenient Tennis Home

Karen books courts at the UBC Tennis Centre numerous times per week – as many as she can fit in to her busy schedule! Both her kids have played at the facility and she also had a friend bring her out a few years ago for a group lesson, where she had a great time and appreciated the high level of instruction. Now she’s a regular friendly face in the centre!

“I love the fact that it’s a public indoor facility, and it’s incredibly welcoming and inclusive. I can play year-round regardless of the weather… which is important in Vancouver!” – Karen

What was your first impression of the UBC Tennis Centre?

Karen: My first feeling was that it was such a welcoming environment and that the staff were very friendly and supportive. You can be someone who has never picked up a tennis racket before, you can be 5 years old or 65 years old – there is a program for you.

Why do you keep coming back to this facility?

Karen: Because I love the fact that it’s a public tennis centre. It’s the only public indoor facility in Vancouver. The centre also hosts all these incredible events and social mixers which are fun to attend and they’re open to anyone. I honestly can’t imagine playing at any other facility in Vancouver. It’s a favourite place of mine.
