Access cards are required for the courts at Préville and Alexandra parks. You can get your card by logging into your bciti account. The cost is $124 for the season and $75 for a half season (starting August 1). New players who do not already have an access card can pick one up at the recreation centre during opening hours (600 Oak Avenue) 48 hours after purchasing their membership online.

Memberships usually go on sale at the end of March. There is no limit to the number of memberships sold. You can therefore obtain one at any time once the season has begun. The official start date of the sale is announced through our various communication tools.

Memberships are reserved for residents only. The cost of replacing a lost card is $30.
