The Tennis programs opened up a brand new complex during the 2014 spring season. Thanks in large part to generous donations, the complex boasts six courts between three adjacent sections. As part of the complex, lights have been installed on every court, allowing the programs to play into the night.
Before 2014, the tennis programs, which were started in 2007, had to travel to area high schools and other venues in the Chattanooga area to play their “home” matches over the years. But all that changed once these courts were completed.
“We are extremely excited about the new courts,” said head tennis coach John Hirte at the time the courts were being constructed. “Being able to play matches on campus will create a true home-court atmosphere that will hopefully lead to more success and a more enjoyable experience for our players and fans.”
The complex sits between Ashe Activity Center and Scotland Yard and offers astonishing views of the Tennessee Valley and the surrounding mountains.
