My dad sent me some info on the new tennis building that’s in the works, I dunno if anyone has seen this already:
[font=arial][size=13px]UNC Charlotte is going to build a new Tennis Building (lockers, restrooms, etc.) and several new courts.
New Tennis Building, Phase 2, on campus, Charlotte, Mecklenburg Co., NC
Cost Estimate: $4,480,000[/size][/font]
Have you seen some of the girls at the US Open? We need some lights on our tennis courts if some of our ladies will be that beautiful.[/quote]
I don’t have problem with lights on the tennis court - i just find it hard to believe that if we are spending 4.5 million on tennis we can’t find another half mil for some lights for a sport that people actually care about a little more than tennis.
New Tennis Courts – design and construct 12 regulation size tennis courts for intercollegiate competition that will include a 3200sf building for restrooms, locker rooms, storage, coaches’ offices and a conference area. The complex will have court lighting, bleacher seating, fencing and a small parking area serving the complex
Wouldn’t that cancel each other out by having both men’s and women’s tennis?[/quote]
Its not a male vs female thing. Women use the tennis facility for their sport and thus keeping it in nice order benefits women. That men’s tennis uses it as well is simply bonus. Plus the tennis facility is by far the worst sports facility we have. CLeaning it up helps the program. If we bring, say, Big East officials for a tour do we want them to see our current outbuilding or the shinny new one with chairback seats?
