Indoor Fieldhouses (1 & 2) now open at Genesis Centre!
For the last couple of months, both Fieldhouse 1 and Fieldhouse 2 have been undergoing some major renovations. As always, our priority is to deliver safe, accessible, and high-quality recreational experiences to our community. The decision to upgrade our facilities was driven by the evolving needs of our community, as well as our commitment to providing high-quality services to our clients. We’re happy to announce that these renovations have recently been completed and the fieldhouses are now open for community use.
- In Fieldhouse 1, new artificial turf was installed for the Fall/Winter seasons (October-March). For the Spring/Summer seasons, this turd will be replaced by a concrete pad, providing a more comfortable and consistent playing surface.
- Field House 2, on the other hand, now has a new pulastic flooring that is designed to reduce the risk of injury while providing excellent traction. The flooring in Field House 2 will be comparable to those used in our Community and Feature Gymnasiums.
- Both fields also feature 8-foot boards, compared to the original 4-foot boards. This provides more containment for equipment and makes for a more enjoyable playing experience.
- The outer area of the boards is made of strong Plexiglass material, creating a quality viewing experience for those enjoying from outside the Field Houses while ensuring safety is maintained on the inside.
How many badminton courts will be added?
As the playing surface changes in Fieldhouse 2, 9 badminton courts will be available following the renovation. Alternatively, the newly renovated Fieldhouse 2 will accommodate up to 3 volleyball courts instead. Additional features include field hockey lines, futsal lines, and pickleball lines for alternative play.
Are there going to be curtains separating the badminton courts?
Yes, there will be curtains dividing the courts in fieldhouse 2. Each dividable section can hold up to 3 badminton courts or 1 volleyball court.
