With the Tech Women’s Tennis team hosting Syracuse on Jan. 17, the brand new Ken Byers Ten- nis Complex has officially opened. The Men’s Tennis team will get their first match at Ken Byers when they host Old Dominion on Friday, Jan. 18 at 1 p.m., and will play Lipscomb at 7 p.m.
Ken Byers Tennis Complex will have a total of sixteen courts: four outdoor practice courts, six outdoor competition courts, and six indoor courts. Prior to the construction of Ken Byers Tennis Complex, Tech had only three in-door courts.
Bill Moore Tennis Center, Tech’s previous tennis complex, had the indoor tennis facility located between the outdoor courts and the track on Fowler Street. Ken Byers Tennis Complex has the indoor facility on the corner of Fowler and 10th street with the outdoor courts between it and the track. With this new arrange- ment, Tech will construct outdoor seating that allows spectators to view the outdoor tennis courts and the track.
