Trine University has added new tennis courts and a plaza thanks to generous donors.
Construction of the Ryan Tennis Center was completed in Oct. 2015. The center is named for lead donors Cliff Ryan, a Trine University trustee and 1966 alumnus, and his wife, Sig. The facility features two new tennis courts, bringing the total to six courts, along with seating and a plaza area to allow for tournament officiating. Additional work completed in the spring of 2016 included a complete resurfacing of the already existing tennis courts.
"Thanks to dedicated alumni and friends, such as the Ryans, Trine is able to update its athletic facilities for our competitive tennis teams and all students," said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine president. "This project is one part of the more than $155 million that Trine has raised and invested in the campus in the past 10 years."
The Thunder tennis teams will play their inaugural season in Ryan Tennis Center beginning in fall 2016.
