Liberty Indoor Tennis Center Officially Opens with Dedication Ceremony
The new indoor home of Liberty men's and women's tennis, the brand-new Liberty Indoor Tennis Center, officially opened on Tuesday with a dedication ceremony.
Speakers included Liberty Director of Athletics Ian McCaw, Men's Tennis Head Coach Derek Schwandt, Women's Tennis Head Coach Jeff Maren and Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance CEO & Chief Economic Devlopment Officer Megan Lucas.
The $5 million project was first announced on Nov. 14, 2019, and construction on the new 48,000-square foot facility began on April 23, 2020. The Liberty Indoor Tennis Center hosted its first matches on Feb. 13, as the Lady Flames defeated both Davidson (7-0 final) and Towson (6-1 final) on that day. Two days later (Feb. 15), the Flames men's tennis team defeated William & Mary 5-2 in its first match in the new facility.
The facility features six courts and seating for 100 fans. The building will also house locker rooms, a team lounge, a laundry facility and a concessions area.
