The club was formed for the 2018-2019 season with the primary purpose of securing more winter indoor playing space for area players. This was a formal continuation of an initiative started by one of our founding members when he secured indoor space on his own for local players to play on at a school with three courts in the 2017-2018 season on the weekend. At the time there was no club booked space nor was there adequate dedicated winter indoor space in the area. The following season YHW approached the town of Stony Plain regarding booking space in the Heritage Pavilion. YHW and the town came to a long term agreement. With the support of a benefactor we now have 7 dedicated full size indoor courts that allow play at a number of levels from learning to play to the most advanced levels. This past season we had over 90 players. 70% of them completed the year end survey and this is how they responded about the program;.
