These tennis courts in the Montcalm district have been ripped up for much-needed repairs.

The tennis season came to an abrupt and early end for users of the four courts in Parc des Saints-Martyrs at Rue Père-Marquette and Avenue Calixa-Lavallée in the Montcalm district. The courts are the only free, city-owned tennis facilities in the neighbourhood. Two weeks ago, power shovels were excavating the courts which had been covered with a synthetic turf.
