Nicest college courts
 
Which team has the nicest court?

I would assume Pepperdine has some although I havent been there.

TCU hornfrogs. and of course, best in the country, Stanford tennis.

NOT ContraCostaCollege in SanPablo. Unused surface with weeds 3' long growing from the cracks along most of the painted lines. 8 courts which would be beautiful if they were ever used.

University Of Washington has some sweet facilities.

Agree, UVA has to be up there also. Hey nethawk, a friend of mine is considering retiring in Wenatchee, how is the tennis there ?

Indiana University, their tennis center is fantastic and they have some beautiful outdoor public courts in the center of campus

UGA is really nice. Stanford is the Mecca. TAMU, I've heard, is pretty nice. Ohio State has everything too. Haven't been to UVA, but it has to be sweet since all the studs have flocked there recently.

My Gators have it pretty good, and new indoor courts are near complete. Still lack the 12 total competition courts needed to host a regional though.

I love playing at Nordstrom. It just feels so nice.

For DIII, I would say Claremont McKenna and Gustavus Adolphus are up there.

Never been to UVA's outdoor courts, but my high school girl's team played their Regional match last spring at their indoor facility @ Boar's Head. That place is sweet. I suppose having a supporter such as Boyd Tinsley doesn't hurt the cause...

OU, Tulsa, Tennessee, Tyler JC, Auburn. Might be hard to say who has the best.

I don't like the IU indoor facility, bad lighting to play on and really tough to watch everything but 2 courts.

The University of Michigan has a great set up, both indoors and outdoors.

I haven't seen them but I heard that Texas A&M's facilities are incredible, too.

Pepperdine's facilities are pretty nice. The court viewing is not the best but it is hard to beat the ocean views. I'm not a big fan of having to look across two courts to see the third. They also have 10 more courts right next to the PCH that overlook the ocean that they use occasionally.

The tennis here is pretty good! If you want to get a lot of solid pickup matches go to lower woodland on the weekends, can get some fun doubles action! :) UW outdoor courts are good but sometimes hard to find somebody who doesn't already have a hitting partner
