Residents living near Shaheed Bhagat Singh Park in Winnipeg's Waverley West will be able to hit new tennis and pickleball courts in August.

Masroor Khan, president of the South Winnipeg Community Centre, was about to head to the new courts on Saturday. He says there is an increasing demand for tennis and pickleball courts in the growing community.

“We are listening to the voices of residents for better recreational facilities in this area and we are making this vision a reality together,” Khan said.

Demographics are changing rapidly in southern Winnipeg, especially when it comes to immigration. More than 65 percent of residents identify as visible minorities, and 43 percent identify as immigrants.

Khan says the community center listened to newcomers to see what they needed and wanted in their neighborhood, and tennis courts were a common request.

The park improvements include two new tennis courts with pickleball court lines, landscaping, benches and fencing.

The project cost is $293,500, of which $59,000 is funded through the 2023 Parks and Recreation Enhancement Program, $142,000 from the Land Dedication Reserve Fund and $92,500 from the Province of Manitoba's Building Sustainable Communities Program.

Waverley MLA David Pankratz says projects like this get off the ground when the community comes together with great ideas.

He called it a very exciting project that will support residents in their pursuit of healthy living and increased recreational opportunities in the area.

'People come from everywhere'

Construction of park improvements at Shaheed Bhagat Singh Park is expected to begin this week and be completed by mid-August.

Count. Janice Lukes (Waverley West) says the community is one of the fastest growing areas in the city.

“People come from all over the world with all kinds of interests,” Lukes says.

There is one tennis court in Waverley West which was built about eight years ago. Since then, there have been many requests for more, Lukes said.

They are working with Tennis Manitoba to discuss the possibility of having the ability to reserve court times, but Lukes says the courts will remain open to the public most of the time.

Khan says other projects are planned for the community this summer.

“South Winnipeg is the fastest growing area in…in terms of immigration,” he said. “We're building these facilities and listening to the demands of the newcomers and various demographics, and making sure we meet all those demands.”
