The University of Idaho tennis program took a massive step forward with renovations and upgrades to the outdoor tennis courts on campus during the summer of 2008. Construction was completed on the six Memorial Gym Courts and the four courts available on the Administration Lawn.

Inside the Kibbie Dome, the team has three indoor courts on which to practice when inclement weather prevents outdoor play.


“The completion of the four Admin Lawn courts, as well as the upgrades at the Memorial Gym courts, are a huge boost for our tennis program,” University of Idaho director of tennis Jeff Beaman said. “This will not only benefit our program but will also be an asset to Moscow and the surrounding tennis communities.”

Construction began in May 2008 on the courts on the Administrative Lawn and was completed in early June. Attention then shifted to the Memorial Gym courts where upgrades were completed in September and the final surface coat was applied in October 2008 to complete the project.

“They really did a great job, not only on the playing surface but by putting in four very attractive courts in the picturesque Admin lawn setting,” Beaman said. “The Memorial Gym court upgrades were extremely well done and have added to the courts already in that location.

“Going from three playable courts to 10 gives us the ability to host home matches, WAC events and fall tournaments in the future,” Beaman stated. “Ten courts will also have the benefit of running more effective team practices, providing upgraded facilities for HPERD classes, intramurals and use by Idaho students, faculty and staff.”
