Rice Tennis ComplexOwls Break Ground on New Tennis Complex
You are never really playing an opponent.
You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits.
That is real joy.
-Arthur Ashe Rice aspires to excellence in all its endeavors as a premier university, and successful competition at the highest level of Division I-A athletics is an integral part of that commitment. To that end, we seek to recruit the most talented scholar-athletes, offer them a transformative academic experience and equip them with the skills to become leaders in all domains. In short, we aspire to become the top destination for scholar-athletes in the nation. In the highly competitive world of Division I-A athletics, our most powerful recruiting assets are our academic reputation, our distinctive approach to undergraduate education and our commitment to making sure our athletes benefit fully from them. Our athletic traditions, the high quality of our coaches and our success on the court also play a role, but in order to remain competitive at this level, we must also invest in facilities that signal to our scholar-athletes that we intend to win, and that we will support them with the training and the tools they need to succeed. Our new $7.5 million tennis center is critical to this strategy. The tennis center, located at the corner of Rice Boulevard and Shepherd Drive, will include 14 lighted playing courts and a new facility with offices, locker rooms and training spaces. Beyond growing the seating capacity and adding state-of-the-art playing surfaces, the center will:
- Meet the evolving needs of the program by creating one of the premier facilities among our peers.
- Enhance our ability to recruit the next generation of elite scholar-athletes.
- Allow the university to host conference championships and NCAA events.
- Engage the campus community and greater Houston area.
