As you may have heard due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Government of Alberta has declared a state of public health emergency. As part of this the CKE Community Centre will be closed immediately. These new measures are necessary to limit the spread of the virus. Currently, we do not have a timeline for reopening. We are in close contact with both municipal and provincial government representatives and will keep you updated as best we can.
We are in unprecedented times in our lives and our top priority is the health and safety of our family, friends and community members. We must do our part to flatten the curve and give our health care system and workers the best chance to get us through this.
I encourage everyone to check in on neighbors or if help is needed please reach out to me directly or any other board member, we will do our best to get you what’s needed. We will continue to post updates on our website and social media outlets. As officials and retailers have stated grocery stores will remain open and over stocking on household goods and food is not necessary, our food chain supply is not at risk.
We are very grateful for our community and the help that many have been offering. We are resilient and we’ll get through this, be neighborly, keep our hands clean and stay positive.

City Planning and Engagement Opportunities
Proposed “Guidebook for Great Communities”
“With the Guidebook for Great Communities (Guidebook), we are planning communities in Calgary so they offer more housing, shops, and service choices for the people who live, work and visit them. When a community provides more opportunities, people can live in their neighbourhood regardless of age, income or stage in life”
To see what the Guidebook is all about, click here:
Liveable Streets community engagement initiative in the Heritage Communities area.
The information gathered through their project will focus on enhancing walking and wheeling on Neighbourhood Streets, making them safer, more comfortable and welcoming for all community members. The engagement will create project lists that will be implemented through existing budgets and over time through redevelopment opportunities. To have your say in what makes moving in your community great, or could be improved, visit Calgary.ca to participate in the online survey. Their Survey is open until March 31.

Hello tennis and pickle ball enthusiasts!! I’m sure you all were as excited as I was to learn that we can return to the courts!
CKE is putting a combination lock on the gate so you’ll need to pay an access fee of $30/adult to get the code to use the court. Other communities charge more to access their courts, but we’ve decided to keep the fee low so the courts are accessible to all families. If you’re in a position to pay a bit more, we’d be most appreciative but there’s absolutely no pressure of course.
Pay Tennis Court Access Fee Here
We were scheduled to have our courts resurfaced this spring/summer but I’m sad to report it doesn’t look we can pull it off this year. A group of us have been fundraising tirelessly for the last two years including the submission of 4 grant applications. The city had approved a grant to cover 75% of the total cost ($189K) which was a huge win for us but because of lost revenue to our community due to COVID restrictions, we fall a bit short of our target.
Group lessons (this may change later in the summer) can’t be offered at this time but coach Jelena will be offering private tennis lessons:
$50/hour for one person
$60/hour for 2-6 people (from same household).
Please contact her directly to arrange: Jelena Tomasovic

Safer use of tennis courts (from the City of Calgary site)
- If you have any symptoms (fever, cough, fatigue, etc), stay home and isolate.
- Wash your hands before and after using the tennis courts.
- Keep your distance, stay away from others. Leave at least 2 metres of space between players at all times.
- If the tennis court is crowded, head to another court.
- Each player should bring differently coloured tennis balls to the court. Only pick up/touch your own colours; don’t touch your opponent’s colours.
- At the end of your match, collect your own coloured balls and wash your hands.
- Don’t shake hands after the match.
