Any chance they will be renovated and the tennis programs will return?

My thinking is it should be for parking for people who are "buying or renewing season tickets to any sport" :lol:

Since Walt's hiring it might be tough to find a space !!

Why not demolish the front set of courts and turn it into green space? Then, refurbish the back set of courts for use by the students. How many college campuses do not have tennis courts for their students and/or neighbors to use?

The intent for that space is to be the future expansion of Carson Center to accommodate a new student fitness center. This will be happening sooner rather than later. Tennis courts will be relocated to be adjacent to physical plant between S Frederick and S Weinbach butted up against the Lloyd Expwy. There are 9 residential homes there now which I believe UE owns most of at this time.

Here is a previous master plan: https://www.evansville.edu/offices/pres ... vision.pdf

Edit on my above post: I forgot UE dropped tennis, so I would assume relocation of the tennis courts will not happen with no new tennis courts scheduled.
