The UVA Tennis Complex at Boar’s Head Sports Club is the next step in the development of the Cavaliers’ tennis programs. The new facility will create a true home for Virginia Men’s and Women’s Tennis with six competition courts, one exhibition court and a pavilion to house locker rooms, coaches’ offices, strength and conditioning space, a training room, academic space and a nutrition area.

The six competition courts will enable matches to be played in an intimate setting and allow fans to feel close to the play. The exhibition court will allow for select feature matches and provide for a training area for student-athletes to develop their skills.

The two-level, 10,000 square foot tennis pavilion will be situated adjacent to the MacArthur Squash Center and will overlook the entire tennis complex. It will feature the following:

  • Entry Lobby with a Hall of Fame
  • Locker / team rooms
  • Strength and Conditioning room
  • Training room
  • Academic space
  • Nutrition area
  • Coaches’ offices
  • Meeting rooms
  • Covered terrace overlooking the entire complex

The seating grandstand will have a capacity of approximately 1,000 and allow fans to enjoy matches surrounding all courts, creating a true “stadium feel”. There is also room for temporary seating platforms to allow for bleachers to accommodate fans at larger events. A video scoreboard will keep fans updated on scores at all courts, with additional single match scoring displayed on each court.

The project is still in the design development phase and is projected to cost approximately $10.5 million, not including additional annual operational and maintenance costs. Final cost estimates are expected to be finalized by December 2018. With the conceptual study completed, the fundraising campaign will intensify to complete the funding for the project. Construction for the new facility will not begin until the fundraising is completed. Design plans are subject to change.
