Tennis Center Is Newest Benefit For Alumni Who Are Life Members

The UW Alumni Association announced in January that paid-in-full life members may use the indoor tennis courts at the Nordstrom Tennis Center. Named for Lloyd Nordstrom, former UW varsity tennis star, this first-class facility houses six indoor courts and is the training center for the UW men's and women's tennis teams.

During fall, winter and spring quarters, life members may reserve courts on weekdays 8 a.m.-1 p.m. with two-day advance reservations and 6-11 p.m. with same-day reservations. On weekends, life members can play tennis 8 a.m.-9:45 p.m. with two-day advance reservations.

During summer quarter, court reservations will be accepted all week during regular operating hours (weekdays 8 a.m.-11 p.m., weekends 8 a.m. -9:45 p.m.) with two-day advance reservations.

Players may reserve one court only for a one-and-a-quarter hour period. Fees are $13 per court, plus an additional $2 for each guest player.
