Nastiest college courts
 
Indiana's indoor center isnt the greatest IMHO and San Diego State (my alma mater) was pretty lame outside when I was there, have they upgraded? Any others?

Central Florida is pretty embarrassing. Florida's intramural courts are nicer than UCF.

San Diego State built a great facility a few years ago(at least 6 years now).. it's one of the best I've seen for a Cal State school..

Man, when I played the JC circuit in the early 90's, there were some really sh*tty courts.

Indiana outdoor is beautiful, indoor is a different story.

the outdoor courts in the middle of campus are top notch, the indoor is perfectly functional (imo)

Well, sure. I think we are talking about major conferences. Not real fair to compare a school with 100 million budget to one with a 2 million budget.

The Miami (FL) courts are nice, but some of the nets are "blah", and some of the courts that are near trees get LOTS of debris. The singles sticks are a joke; they are literally unpainted (a few are painted) wooden stakes... But the facility is quite nice, its a pretty cool layout.

The Ole Miss courts were REALLY nice when I hit on them though.

I would have to throw in UCLA's Straus courts.

1-3 players play in stadium courts, while 3-6 play on the outside courts.
Makes it hard to watch all six matches.

Matches held in stadium courts have an empty feeling, even with 20 people watching.

Agree. Stadium has grand feel, but the back courts feel really second rate, like it should be the stadium storage area. At least at Stanford (similiar big stadium type) you know there are matches going on 4-6 courts and can sense excitement of a good match, and walk over to see it from the side area. At UCLA you don't even know matches 4-6 exist.

Thats like at Miami.

NAU courts are horrible. Its just a bunch of mats laid down. Fastest court I have ever played on by far.

Money priorities go elsewhere even though tennis is a wonderful sport, it seems one has to have a top team to get noticed for funds, exceptions exist.

I play a lot at Eastern Kentucky Universities courts and they are not the best. What's really sad is that the the much smaller Berea community college has 11 brand new HarTru courts.

Leelord337 12-27-2012 10:38 PM

can't think of any bad courts in and around Texas, Rice courts are nice, UH Very nice, and Baylor nice as well...even the community college courts are nice lol

the old outdoor courts at the u of illinois (on the west side of the adkins center) have got to be the worst in terms of actual surface. one side or another on most of them has sunk a little so that almost every court there is tilted slightly to one side. i'm sure the rest of the big ten schools like that!

UT's intramural courts are horrible! I played a Tennis on Campus tournament there and nearly resprained my ankle on those cracked and slippery courts.
