Outdoor Tennis and Pickleball Strategy - Survey closes Dec. 31

Pickleball is currently the fastest growing sport in North America. As such, demand for court space is steadily increasing across Ottawa, while tennis continues to be a well-loved sport in our community. The City has identified the need for an outdoor tennis and pickleball strategy, which will ensure that communities across Ottawa have access to both sports. The strategy will also serve as a reference guide for future management, oversight, and development of all public and club-operated outdoor tennis and pickleball courts. Currently the City operates over 500 outdoor tennis and pickleball courts, including combination courts (shared tennis and pickleball lines), single sport courts and municipal membership club courts. Following an evaluation of the current public court model, the strategy will identify a clear direction and delivery model for both outdoor tennis and pickleball across the city of Ottawa. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]. For more information, please visit


Resident feedback is an important part of developing the City’s outdoor tennis and pickleball strategy. Complete the survey at this link to tell the City about your household’s use of the outdoor tennis and pickleball courts in your community. Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please email [email protected].
