Niagara University Tennis Facility
In the fall of 2001, Niagara University completed construction of a brand new, state-of-the-art tennis fieldhouse. The fieldhouse was made possible in large part due to the generous contributions of many Niagara tennis alumni and supporters. The donations, totaling over $8,000, made the construction of the new tennis facility a reality.
The fieldhouse provides the Niagara men’s and women’s tennis teams with over 1,000 square feet of meeting, lounge and storage space that is located next to the tennis courts. The building includes a dormer for storage, a covered porch area for picnics, a changing room, space for a player’s lounge/meeting/study area, room for a tennis-stringing machine and an office area.
One of the prominent features of the building is the dormer window. The window has an engraved Niagara tennis logo. The window, which was donated to the Niagara tennis programs by Paul and Eileen Calkins, is the centerpiece of the facility and completes the overall atmosphere of the fieldhouse.
The new fieldhouse, coupled with the newly resurfaced tennis courts and Niagara’s relationship with the Sportsplex for indoor tennis needs, gives Niagara some of the best tennis facilities in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
