East Carolina's men's and women's tennis programs play their outdoor home matches at River Birch, which serves as the primary off-campus outdoor competition site for the Pirates during the fall and spring seasons. The complex possesses a clubhouse and eight lighted courts, enabling matches to be played at any time of day or night.
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's eight-court outdoor facility is utilized by both the men's and women's tennis teams for practice and skill-development purposes. The courts are conveniently located adjacent to the Ward Sports Medicine Building, which houses locker rooms, athletic training amenities and academic support services for student-athletes.
