Description du lieu patrimonial

The Rossland Tennis Courts are located in a residential area in the north east portion of the City of Rossland, British Columbia, and accessed just off Park Street, a major collector road. The civic address is 2630 Leroi Avenue. The present extent of the property is seven 30' X 100' lots with the three courts taking up almost all of that area.

Valeur patrimoniale

The Rossland Tennis Courts are valued for their continuous use over the past hundred years. Their ongoing maintenance and periodic refurbishment demonstrates the long-held appreciation that Rosslanders have felt for tennis, recreation and outdoor pursuits.

A Society of interested people has always directed the operation and organization of tennis in Rossland - proof that the opportunities the courts provide for skill development, competition and exercise are not only utilized but also valued.

An identifiable characteristic of Rossland culture is the integration of outdoor sport and social activities and the Rossland Tennis Courts are yet another example of this aspect of Rossland culture which has been true for over one hundred years.
