Included among East Carolina's new era of athletic complex construction, expansion and renovation is the ECU Indoor Tennis Facility, which opened its doors in February, 2011.
The 22,000-square-foot venue, which was designed exclusively for use by the Pirate and Lady Pirate tennis program and meets all of the standards set by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, features an acrylic-based durable hard-court surface covering three courts, indirect lighting and movable screens separating each playing surface.
The indoor facility brings an advantage for East Carolina Tennis the school has never experienced, enabling the both programs to conduct matches, practices and individual lessons in comfort despite adverse or inclement weather conditions outside.
East Carolina plays its outdoor home matches at the recently resurfaced and refurbished eight-court ECU Tennis Complex located directly behind Minges Coliseum and adjacent to the Ward Sports Medicine Building, which gives Pirate student-athletes a state-of the-art hard-top surface for competition. In addition to spring home matches, the complex also serves as venue for fall tournament play.
