Robson Tennis Center
When the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center was dedicated in 1991, it instantly joined the ranks of the nation's finest on-campus tennis facilities. The complex features 17 regulation size courts, a center-court grandstand, lights, team rooms, a permanent canopy over the stands, a concession area, a pro shop and restrooms. The president of the LaNelle Robson Foundation, Edward J. Robson, established the foundation in memory of his late wife LaNelle. In honor of LaNelle's love of Wildcat tennis, Edward donated the canopy that hangs over the center court grandstands. In the past couple of years, several improvements have been made to the complex. Former Arizona men's tennis player David Mehl and his family funded the installation of the stadium scoreboard in honor of Mehl's brother, George, a former men's tennis player. The scoreboard has the capability of displaying the scores of singles and doubles matches. In addition, a public address system was set up to help enhance the atmosphere at the Robson Tennis Center. In the continuing effort to improve the experience of the student-athlete, the Lesher Room recently underwent a renovation. The facility serves as a team room that can accommodate team meetings, video analysis and special events. The tennis courts are also available for public play. For information call 621-9902.
