CAMPAIGN PROGRESS

"MTSU has a long and proud tradition of great tennis. The addition of this much needed indoor tennis facility will be a giant step toward both programs becoming perennial top 25 nationally ranked tennis programs."
Jim "Yogi" Burgener, former MT tennis player (1971-74)
"The success of any tennis program revolves around recruiting. I remember when I would have a recruit in, no matter how great the visit had gone so far, eventually she would get around to 'the question' - Where do you play in bad weather?"
Sandy Neal, former MT women's tennis head coach
"This will be another milestone in continuing to establish a national tennis program at Middle Tennessee. Our men's and women's tennis teams and local tennis enthusiasts are hungry for a first-class facility to showcase how great tennis is in our region."
Marco Born, former MT player and 2007 NCAA Doubles National Champion
"Rutherford County has needed a first-class indoor tennis facility for a long time. My family has supported it financially, and I encourage other families to give as well. It will take all of us working together to reach our goal of building an indoor tennis facility."
Shane Reeves, Murfreesboro business owner and tennis enthusiast
Why are we building a new indoor facility?
Currently residents and teams must travel to Nashville to compete and practice during the fall and winter months. A new indoor facility will allow everyone to play here locally in all seasons. It also assists the Blue Raider men's and women's teams in recruiting the top players in the world to our university.
Where will the new indoor facility be located?
The university and the athletic department are working to partner with the City of Murfreesboro and the Parks & Recreation department to construct it at Old Fort Park adjacent to the outdoor courts.
Why would you want to build it off campus?
An off-campus facility would provide the opportunity for local tennis enthusiast to play during the fall and winter months. The Parks & Recreation department would operate the facility on a daily schedule during times the facility is not in use by our men and women.
What features will be in the new tennis facility?
The new facility will feature many great amenities for fans and tennis players alike. You will enter the building in the main foyer. It will have six blue championship courts along with grandstands to watch tennis matches. It will also have men's and women's locker rooms. All court lighting will meet NCAA requirements.
Will the general public be able to use the facility?
Yes, that is the reason we are working to partner with the City of Murfreesboro and build the facility at Old Fort Park. The general public can reserve court times to play.
