UVA Tennis Complex at Boar’s Head Sports Club

The UVA Tennis Complex at Boar’s Head Sports Club is the next step in the development of UVA’s tennis programs. This $12 million tennis complex will feature 12 championship-caliber “Deco-Turf” courts that are constructed over asphalt on compacted fill. This facility will be capable of hosting regional and national tennis events including NCAA tournament play.

The two-level, 9,300 square foot tennis pavilion will overlook the entire complex and will include:

  • Clubhouse with a Hall of Fame
  • Team rooms
  • Locker rooms
  • Training and equipment rooms
  • Lounges
  • Coaches’ offices
  • Meeting room
  • Film room
  • Viewing platform

The seating grandstand will accommodate 720 spectators. Sloped, grassy terrace areas, which have become a tradition with UVA sports fans, will be behind the stadium courts and provide additional seating. There is also room for temporary seating platforms to allow for bleachers to accommodate fans at larger events. Pedestrian walkways will allow spectators to move easily from match to match as competition ebbs and flows.

In the design is the latest technology for tennis facilities, including high intensity, shielded tennis lighting and state of the art digital scoreboard technology.

The tennis complex will soon become one of the nation’s premiere venues. Built on the tennis programs’ long tradition of Uncompromised Excellence, the facility will enrich opportunities for tennis student-athletes and fans.

Men’s and women’s tennis at the University of Virginia have earned their place among the nation’s elite tennis programs. In 2016, the men’s team captured its second straight NCAA Championship and its third in the past four years. The women’s team is enjoying its most successful era in program history, making its second appearance in the NCAA quarterfinals in 2016. Numerous student-athletes from both programs have been recognized for their academic achievement, while earning national and conference honors and winning NCAA individual championships.

Attracting top talent from across the country and internationally, UVA provides a unique experience for members of the men’s and women’s tennis programs. Combined with an education from one of the finest universities in the United States, the Virginia Athletics department is committed to providing student-athletes and coaches with the resources necessary to win championships, excel in the classroom and prepare for success in personal and professional pursuits after graduation.
