|Dennis J. and Mary Lou Schwartz
The Dennis J. and Mary Lou Schwartz Tennis Center opened its doors to the community for play on Saturday, December
30, 2006. The facility is also home to the Boilermaker varsity tennis teams. The teams practice and host competitions throughout the year.
The center, which was completed in December 2006, is Purdue University’s first indoor tennis center. Named for the lead donors, Dennis J. and Mary Lou Schwartz, the facility provides the Purdue and Tippecanoe County communities with state-of-the-art, modern tennis courts in an upscale setting.
The six indoor and six outdoor courts are available to the public. The 60,000-square-foot facility includes locker rooms for the teams, offices for administrative staff and coaches, an athletic training room, and seating areas for fans on the mezzanine above the courts. A pro shop, located in the lobby, is staffed with knowledgeable people ready to help you with your tennis needs.
Technology at the Schwartz Tennis Center includes 12 Plexipave cushioned courts. The layered system is designed to give better support to the athlete's legs during play. Daktronic electronic scoreboards are on each of the indoor and outdoor courts. The six indoor individual scoreboards feed into a large master scoreboard on the west end of the facility, which displays individual and team scoring. The scoreboards are operated from courtside via wireless remote. The tennis center also uses Dartfish Video Analysis technology to assist in player development. A state-of-the-art sound system with Klipsch speakers helps create an energetic atmosphere for the team events.
We hope you will make the Schwartz Tennis Center your favorite place to play tennis. We also invite you to come to the tennis center to cheer on the Boilermaker teams. Admission is free to the varsity matches.
