Ribbon Cutting for Hanner Tennis Complex Courts Set for Friday
STATESBORO, Ga. -- A ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the Hanner Tennis Complex main courts will take place on Friday, January 27th at 12 p.m. The major renovation of the main courts near Hanner Fieldhouse began last summer with a reconstruction of the facility. The project included the addition of spectator seating near the courts, resurfacing of the playing area, installation of time-controlled gates and lights, and new windscreens.
The Hanner Tennis Complex includes six main courts and four back courts for use by the Eagle Tennis teams for competition and practice. Additionally, the courts are used for recreation by Georgia Southern students, faculty and staff.
The Georgia Southern Men's Tennis team opens the spring portion of its season against Mercer at 2 p.m. on Friday. The Eagle Women's Tennis team will depart for its first match of 2012 against Charleston Southern immediately after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Rainy weather on Friday may postpone the ribbon cutting ceremony until a later date. If the ceremony is rescheduled, the new date will be announced as soon as it is determined.
