Efforts to mobilize the Cook Tennis Center will begin in late April.

Cook Tennis Center

Since Liberty Athletics' announcement in early November that the Cook family would provide the lead gift for the Cook Tennis Center, steady progress has been made toward beginning the facility's construction.

The architectural drawings (viewable from the above link) show the design for the new home of Liberty's tennis programs, which will be built adjacent to the 12 championship tennis courts located on Liberty's Campus North.

Once the facility is completed, Liberty will be able to host collegiate postseason competition, including Big South Men's and Women's Tennis Championships and the opening rounds of the NCAA Tennis Championships.

Construction of the Cook Tennis Center is scheduled to begin in late April, which is after Liberty has completed its home matches for the 2011 spring season. Plans estimate the facility to be completed by early August.

The Lady Flames are currently 9-6 (2-1, Big South), having won their last four matches. The Liberty men hold a record of 7-7 (1-1, Big South), and have won five of its last six contests.
