Lamar Tennis Camps
Thompson Family Tennis Center
Thanks to a very generous $300,000 gift by from Jennifer (Hebert) and Greg Thompson, the Lamar Tennis Facility, now re-named the "Thompson Family Tennis Center" received a total renovation. The renovation included upgrading the current tennis building to include a pro shop that will double as a meeting facility, as well as improvements to the locker-room and restroom facilities and an increased storage area. The Thompson Family Tennis Center also includes a state-of-the art electronic scoreboard capable of keeping scores remotely for up to six matches at once and new awnings to shade the spectator seating.
The Thompson Family Tennis Center is a top-notch facility designed to recruit and retain top student-athletes. The revitalized facility will be viewed as one of the top tennis facilities in the State of Texas.
In addition to serving as home to the Men's and Women's Tennis programs, the facility is open to the entire Lamar University community and has 16 courts in all, with five stadium courts.
