Louisiana Tech Tennis Complex
Situated next to the Joe Aillet Field House and the Jim Mize Track and Field Complex at Louisiana Tech University are eight brand new lighted tennis courts.
Construction on the facility began in March 2008 and concluded in August 2008. On Oct. 15, 2008, the women's tennis team played and swept Grambling State in their inaugural match at the new facility.
The past five seasons has seen the Lady Techsters use the facility as a home court advantage, tallying a 30-24 all-time record at the complex.
One of many improvements is the location of the complex as it is situated behind the track facility. The track provides a barrier from the northerly winds and is a major plus for the team.
The old tennis courts contained a lighting system that was situated in between the courts. The lighting system at the new complex evenly covers the entire facility.
As the sports facilities and the university continue to grow, the results will be tremendous on many levels.
On Nov. 1, 2008, Tech President Dr. Dan Reneau dedicated the facility and announced it as the Louisiana Tech Tennis Complex.
Since then it saw the Lady Techsters host its first-ever Western Athletic Conference match on April 8, 2010 against Hawai'i. They then notched their first-ever WAC win a few days later on April 10 against San Jose State.
