The new Tennis Complex will create an environment which maximizes the potential for student-athlete success and recruiting by including championship courts, seating and amenities that reflect the University’s status as a leader in collegiate tennis. The facility will be a venue that is sought after by players, spectators, the ACC and the NCAA for hosting competition and events.

The Tennis Complex project is a multi-stage effort. The initial phases provide state-of-the-art competition courts for outdoor and indoor play as well as spectator seating and amenities. Future phases will include a team building and other support facilities.

Phase 1 includes:

  • 12 competition and practice courts
  • Championship court lighting
  • Outdoor running turf and training area
  • Ample storage space for both varsity programs
  • Modern scoring, PA, live streaming and other technology capabilities
  • New fan amenities: seating, concessions, restrooms, awnings for shade

Phase 1 Expansion includes:

  • Foundation and roof repairs of existing indoor facility
  • New LED lights, scoreboard, topcoat acrylics, paint and graphics for indoor courts
  • Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center entry, lobby and mezzannine enhancements
  • New carpet and flooring
  • Spectator railing enhancements


Men’s and women’s tennis are set to rev into next gear with the completion of a major overhaul and renovation of the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
