It can be tricky to nab a tennis court in Toronto, especially if you're looking to play in a busy area. However, the city's looking to make it easier to book courts - namely, by making you pay.
Next April, the city will kickstart a pilot project at four public courts outside of the downtown core. Instead of simply showing up on a first-come-first-served basis, you'll be able to buy a one hour permit online.
This isn't a money-making scheme, but rather a management system to ensure better access to these outdoor sports facilities.
There's no word yet on which four courts will be targeted in the pilot or how much you'll have to pay to book them out.
