    This place is so close to where I live in Toronto but it seems that some things must be changed though.

    from the pictures, trying to walk on and off the middle court could be very dangerous when games are being played.

    Went there on Feb 21 with some friends. Very few people since it was newly opened. We could play as much as we wanted for the 3 hours ($5.00): singles or doubles. The courts are nicer than the picture portrayed with high ceiling and rubberised floor. Enough room for some chairs on one of the short end and a few benches on the long side. The court at the centre will have accessibility problem if all 9 courts are used. It was a little cold too, and if the heaters are turned on there might be draft on the left courts. However, we didn't feel the cold once we played even with the heater off, good thing-less sweat. Mind you, if there are more people, maybe the BTU's generated might turn up the temperature.
