The District of North Vancouver held a referendum which included funding for a 4-court permanent indoor tennis facility. The referendum passed and there was now money allocated to build an indoor tennis facility. Also, in 1996, the District of North Vancouver approved the Lloyd Avenue site for building a permanent indoor 4-court tennis facility. And, in 1996, on behalf of the Tennis Society and as a member of the Lower Capilano Community Association, Roger negotiated a 2-year lease for unused tennis courts on a Larco Investments property. The $1.00 lease included 4 courts with a bubble for year-round play.In 1997 and 1998, Roger, Elmer and Frank led a group of dedicated volunteers to run the temporary facility in lower Capilano. The Tennis Society was responsible for maintenance, scheduling, staffing and all manner of duties. They even had to repair the bubble after it was vandalized. The North Vancouver Recreation Commission, under the leadership of Gary Young, contributed by providing a temporary office, washrooms, phone lines, fee collection and liability insurance.
