The Tournament Capital Centre is the heart of recreation, health, and wellness in the City of Kamloops. It is the largest and most comprehensive facility in the region, with dedicated facilities designed to meet the needs of all levels and abilities, from active agers to Olympic athletes.

The success of the facility has exceeded expectations, with demand increasing by over 300% from original predictions to over 800,000 visitors every year.

While the facility has been well maintained, many building components are nearing the end of their life. As part of the asset management program, the City will be proceeding with various updates throughout the facility that will support dynamic and changing user expectations.

To maximize efficiency and costs, the City is also considering various upgrades that could be completed in conjunction with this asset management work. These upgrades would expand the facility's capabilities, increase programming opportunities, improve the building's energy and efficiency, and enhance the facility's design and flow.

    The TCC Fieldhouse opened in 2007 to host the Israel/Canada Fed Cup Tennis Championship. Home to the TRU Wolfpack, the Fieldhouse helped to create what the Tournament Capital Centre is now. In 2017, the indoor track was upgraded to the Olympic-standard MondoTrack, and the third hardwood court was installed. Unfortunately, the line markings on the new track have not maintained the quality promised by the manufacturer, and need to be repainted under warranty.

    Planned updates or replacement:
    • 2019
      -lighting
      -line markings on track
      -resurfacing hardwood courts

    • 2020
      -PA system

    Scheduled construction start: August...

    The Canada Games Aquatic Centre opened to the public in 1993 after hosting the Canada Summer Games. The building envelope (walls and roof); mechanical; electrical; and heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) systems have all been well maintained, but they are original to the building and near or past their expected design life. Aside from extending the life of the building, these updates will also significantly improve the energy efficiency of the building, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and make the building more sustainable.
