IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE IGA STADIUM (updated June 29, 2023)
Please take note of this important update regarding the indoor tennis courts at IGA Stadium.
As you might have seen in the news, starting in 2025, the National Bank Open will become one of the seven biggest tournaments on the ATP and WTA Tours. Previously a seven-day main draw event, the tournament will expand to a 12-day format and will therefore grow from a 56-player field to a draw size of 96 players. This is fantastic news for Canadian tennis, particularly for the cities of Toronto and Montreal who get to host this terrific event.
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE: EXCITING CHANGES AHEAD AT IGA STADIUM
As a result of having more players and staff on-site as of 2025, the ATP and WTA Tours have made it a requirement for us to add more space to our indoor facility at the stadium in order to accommodate the players’ needs during the event. To comply with this directive and optimize the Jacqueline L. Boutet Pavillion’s layout at IGA Stadium, the operations team at Tennis Canada found a creative way to add the newly required space: by building a mezzanine with two levels above Court 1.
While the addition of the mezzanine creates an extra 15,000 square feet, it will come at the cost of the removal of an indoor tennis court. We are aware that we are losing a valuable resource, however, we want to reassure our users that the space beneath the mezzanine will still be accessible to the public. We are currently exploring creating mini-tennis courts with the objective of engaging more deeply with the racquet sport community and giving more people the opportunity to enjoy the facility all year long.
We can expect some challenges with regard to court availability over the next few months, but we will monitor the situation closely and make sure we maximise the use of all courts. Also, outdoor courts will remain open for as long as possible until winter weather arrives. Construction of the mezzanine will begin on August 28 and our hope is to have everything completed by early 2024.
The construction of the mezzanine will be possible thanks to a major fund of $10 million that Tennis Canada received for the National Bank Open in Montreal from the Government of Canada’s Major Festivals and Events Support Initiative (MFESI), specifically through the Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED). This investment, announced on the eve of the 2022 National Bank Open, will prove crucial in supporting various tournament enhancements over the coming years, such as infrastructure upgrades to accommodate more fans and improvements to product offerings.
