The commitment to excellence at Indiana University is obvious when observing the state-of-the-art facilities that the Hoosiers train and compete on throughout the collegiate tennis season.
With both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, Indiana's tennis teams are always assured of a quality tennis practice. Located within walking distance of Indiana's other excellent athletic facilities, the Indiana University Tennis Center and outdoor Varsity Courts have been cited as some of the finest courts in the nation.
The outdoor Varsity Tennis Courts are the primary facility for both the men's and women's tennis squads. With a seating capacity of over 600, spectators are assured a quality view of any one of the 10 courts the complex boasts.
During the winter months and periods of rain, the IU Tennis Center is the Hoosiers' home. With eight courts, locker rooms, and bleacher seating of 300, the indoor facility provides a solid atmosphere for the Hoosiers to train and compete.
The facilities have hosted four Men's Tennis Big Ten Championships. The first came in 1965, then in 1987, 1995 and 2000.
When the varsity tennis teams are not using the indoor facility it is used as a recreation facility for many different types of people. The center's talented staff members teach tennis lessons for kids and adults of any age.
In addition to the tennis lessons, the indoor and outdoor facilities have both played host to many major tournaments throughout the year, including the 1997 ITA Women's Collegiate Summer Circuit National Championships and annually the ITA Women's Summer Regional Championships.
When rain or cold weather force the Hoosiers indoors, they practice at the Indiana University Tennis Center.
The Tennis Center is adjacent to the outdoor complex and houses eight courts, locker rooms, and a seating capacity of several hundred. Combined with the outdoor courts, it gives the Hoosiers one of the best collegiate tennis facilities in the country.
Directions The Tennis Center is located in the Athletics Complex area on the north side of Assembly Hall. The outdoor Varsity Tennis Courts are adjacent to North Fee Lane (See the Interactive Campus Map).
