Pugwash Tennis Group Proposes Expansion

The Pugwash International Tennis Association plans a reorganization that will incorporate a name change and the addition of another sport.

The group told the Pugwash Village Commission it is applying for provincial registration as the Northumberland Tennis and Pickleball Association (NTPA).

The Executive Board will be headed by Diane Burnham, as Chair, Vice-Chair Wayne Reid, Secretary Nancy Burgess-Graham, along with Directors-at-Large Douglas Hunt and Robert Nogler.

The NTPA hopes to promote the sport of pickleball, a game played with elements similar to tennis, that uses a whiffle-ball (shown in the photo) and wooden paddles that look like oversized table tennis paddles.

The group’s greatest concern is the condition of the two tennis courts in the centre of the village. The courts suffer large cracks in the asphalt, the result of improper installation and years of erosion and water run-off. Repairs over the last few years have been temporary, and the problem worsens with each passing year.

The Village Commission noted that new courts are estimated about $200 thousand, a figure well beyond the capacity of the village.

The NTPA proposes to partner with the village, the high school, and perhaps others in a long-term bid to replace the courts.

Given the community’s huge commitment to the larger waterfront development plan, which includes a multi-purpose centre, new performance facility in Eaton Park, and other downtown improvements, the tennis courts will require a major commitment by the whole community, something along the lines of the effort that built the Northumberland Curling Club.

Meanwhile, the tennis enthusiasts may propose a temporary fix for the aging courts that could involve a membrane covering for the existing surfaces that would provide a barrier to ground and surface water erosion, topped with a new asphalt surface. The group did not have any cost projections for the concept, but they will gather details.
