Bastyr to Reopen Campus Tennis Courts

Tennis, anyone? At Bastyr University, the answer will soon be a resounding yes. Two tennis courts located adjacent to the Student Village will open in May 2011. Students, staff, faculty and other visitors will have the opportunity to use the courts on a first-come, first-served basis.

Built in 1958, the tennis courts are hardly new to Bastyr. However, the courts have been out of use for a while, owing to lack of maintenance and Student Village construction. Although the Student Village has usurped the spot where two former courts were located, the two remaining courts are being refurbished with new stripes, nets and fencing. We expect the courts will receive more use than they've had in years.

Also planned for that section of campus are some basketball hoops. Currently the area includes the University athletic fields, which can accomodate baseball, softball and soccer.
