The minor sports community saw the ribbon cutting for a new home for many of Brant sports organizations. It is with thanks to Access Storage, a storage company with 162 locations across across Canada, who had decided to expand their community connection by adding their first Sports Complex in Brantford.
The official opening ceremony included: 6 City Councillors with Councillor Richard Carpenter welcoming everyone given the Mayor’s absence.
There was also representation from M.P.P. Will Bouma’s Office; one of the candidates for Mayor, Kevin Davis; Board members from the Brantford Sports Council; and management of the Access Storage corporation. Everyone celebrated the role a private facility was offering by supporting youth sports in particular and sports in general.
The Brantford Sports Council has an agreement to manage the leasing of space for minor sports and private operations at the rear of the building at the corner of Elgin and Wayne Gretzky parkway. There is an astro-turf flooring for certain sports, a full sand court for beach volleyball and the height and netting for various types of athletic endeavors.
The tenants include Beach Paradise and:
