Bubble Down Scheduled
April 13-15, 2023
Spring is here and it is getting warmer to play in the bubble!
The bubble is scheduled to come down on Thursday, April 13, followed by maintenance days on Friday, April 14 and Saturday, April 15. Courts will be unavailable for booking on these days, reopening on Sunday, April 16 at 9:30 a.m. This year an extra maintenance day is needed to treat the spots where hydraulic oil spilled during the bubble up last fall.
This schedule is subject to change due to weather. If there are weather delays, work will be restricted by West Vancouver’s weekend noise bylaw and an extra day will be needed, with the courts reopening on Tuesday, April 18 at 9:30 a.m.
Please watch this page for updates.
Note that there are many factors that determine the bubble schedule. Most pertinent, is the fact that there is only one company that offers this service, and it is quite a specialized procedure. This company takes down all the bubbles in the lower mainland and Seattle/Portland. As you can imagine, everyone wants their bubbles up and down at the same time. To make things more difficult, this process can only be done on a completely dry day. If there is a rain out, all the scheduled bubbles get pushed back one by one, and the sequence is maintained
