OREGON STUDENT TENNIS CENTER

The University of Oregon Student Tennis Complex serves as home to both the men’s and women’s tennis squads. In addition to providing a competition surface for the Ducks, the six indoor and six outdoor court facility also opens its doors to Oregon’s general student body and club tennis teams. The facility opened September 25, 2000 and was a tremendous step forward in solidifying the presence of Duck Tennis as a major component of the University’s athletic culture. The $2.1 million facility project was the result of a combined fundraising effort from Physical Activities and Recreation Services (PARS) Department, the Athletics Department, and the efforts of former Oregon men’s tennis coach Chris Russell and former women’s coach Jack Griffin. The entire facility received a new playing surface and improved lighting prior to the 2008-2009 season.
