Santa Clara University – Degheri Tennis Center

Santa Clara, CA

Chris Nations worked closely with Santa Clara University Athletics staff on the Degheri Tennis Center, home of the men's and women's tennis programs. The existing tennis courts, which had served the university since the 1950s, were replaced with a first-class tennis facility designed to both increase success for the SCU tennis programs and provide additional recreational activities for the overall student population. The project included:

  • Nine championship lighted courts
  • Seating for 750 spectators
  • Bleachers on the west side
  • The Player's Circle on the east side, a landscaped knoll that provides hillside seating for matches as well as space for team meetings and hospitality receptions
