Ted Robertson, Ron Soper, Mike Wood and Kirk Sabine, representing the Sussex & Area Tennis Association, presented Sussex Mayor and Council a donation of $20,000 towards the Princess Louise Park tennis court expansion project. Corey McAllister, representing Brown’s Paving, announced that Brown’s Paving Ltd. has committed to providing the asphalt for the project – a donation that has made a significant impact in propelling the project.

Mr. Robertson expressed the Tennis Association’s excitement for the project, highlighting that it will enable more tournaments and games to be hosted, addressing the current limitations due to size. Mayor Thorne acknowledged the association’s hard work and commitment to the facility, recognizing the enhancements made over the past decade.

While tennis continues to thrive in Sussex, a newfound love of pickleball has also swept the Community. Thanks to the collaboration with Brown’s Paving Ltd., the tennis court expansion project will include four new pickleball courts alongside a second tennis court. Pickleballs accessibility and social nature make it an ideal activity for people of all ages and skill levels. A welcomed addition to Sussex, providing the Community with even more opportunities to pick up a racket, hit the courts and enjoy the sports they love.

Corey McAllister spoke to Brown’s Paving’s long-standing sponsorship of the summer tennis program and expressed their enthusiasm for being part of the project.
