Canada Masters (ATP 1000) (1995-present)

Uniprix Stadium (French: Stade Uniprix) is the main tennis court at the Canada Masters tournament in Montreal, Quebec. Built in 1996, the centre court stadium currently holds 11,700 spectators.[1] It was formerly known as Du Maurier Stadium, after the cigarettes brand. It had since been renamed after Uniprix, a major pharmacy chain in Quebec.

The twelve courts at this venue use the DecoTurf cushioned acrylic surface, the same surface as the U.S. Open Grand Slam event.

Its core seating area is a remnant of the former Major League Baseball stadium on the site, Jarry Park Stadium, the original home of the Montreal Expos.

It hosted the WTA US Open Series in 2006 and hosted the 2007 ATP US Open Series (Toronto and Montreal switch WTA and ATP every year).
