The Outsider’s Guide: Don’t Tell Anyone About This Rooftop Tennis Court

Looking for somewhere special to pretend you're in 'Challengers'? We've got just the place.

There is no shortage of great tennis courts in Vancouver. Besides the private clubs (we see you, Jericho!) there are a whopping 174 public courts available across the city, meaning there’s always going to be a spot out there somewhere for you to smack a ball around. Some feature ocean views; others are a little, uh, grittier; but none are quite as special as the hidden tennis courts on top of a parking garage at 600 Moberly Road. Five courts are surrounded by a very tall fence, so there’s no risk of overshooting into traffic below, but the thrill of swinging your racquet around above it all can’t  be contained.
