“Promoting the importance of health and wellness to our community – both on and off campus – is an integral part of the vision of UNB Saint John. Tennis is proven to have significant health, social and psychological benefits. It can be played by anyone, at any age and is a great way to have fun with family and friends. This incredible indoor facility is a welcome addition to our Saint John campus. I personally, cannot wait to take my first lesson!”
– Dr. Petra Hauf, Vice-President Saint John
"The biggest challenge we have in our region is the weather. Our season is already short because of our long winters, so having to cancel organized events and programming in the summer because of rain is very discouraging. An indoor tennis centre would solve this problem and provide much needed infrastructure to transform our sport into a year-round activity for players of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. It will serve the current players in our region and will enable the continued growth of our sport.
Let's make this happen for our current and future generations!"
Matt Morrison – Saint John Tennis
"The completion of this new indoor tennis facility will demonstrate how Saint John is open for business to developments that help build our community. In addition to the obvious benefit of being able to play tennis all year long, the Fundy Region Tennis Centre will create design and construction jobs during development and part-time and full-time positions during operation."
Dan Verner, P.Eng, MBA Saint John
"I have witnessed how tennis truly is “the sport for everyone and the sport for life!” Many parents have told me that tennis changed their child’s life for the better. My own children are proof of the positive impact of tennis. Having a year-round facility that can help kids develop self-esteem and grow confidence, while learning to play a better game of tennis is important to me as a coach, but more importantly, as a father."
Dana Brown, President Tennis NB
