Facilities Update: Carolina Tennis Center, Rice Athletics Center

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
We've got the latest updates on several of our current facilities projects at the Athletics Village.

The newest competition facility for the Gamecocks, the Carolina Tennis Center, is officially open and ready for the men's and women's tennis teams to use this spring. With 12 courts (six on each side of the complex), multiple scoreboards (two large master scoreboards as well as individual scoreboards at each court) and a capacity for over 700 fans, the new complex is extremely fan-friendly and will be a great home for both teams. Depending on weather, the facility may hold its first event as early as Wednesday, January 25 (Women's Tennis vs. Furman, 3:30 p.m.) When faced with inclement weather, our tennis programs use their indoor facility at the Field House.

Also at the Athletics Village, the new Rice Athletics Center is the next project scheduled to be completed. The project is on schedule at 65% finished and is  anticipated to be ready for move-in at the end of May/early June. The three-story, 68,000 square foot building will house several departments including the Business Office, Compliance, Gamecock Club & Development, Administration, Media Relations, Ticket Operations, Marketing, Operations, and Facilities & Event Management as well as the majority of our coaches' offices.
