South Haven, Minn. – The Oklahoma City Tennis Center, an indoor and outdoor municipal tennis center, has been named Municipal Tennis Facility of the Year by Tennis Industry magazine. This is the second honor this year for the center, which was also named a 2016 USTA Outstanding Facility in the Large Facility Category.
The OKC Tennis Center features 24 outdoor courts, including six dedicated youth courts, and six indoor courts. The indoor tennis building was part of a $3 million capital improvement campaign, which allows the center to host events year-round without being restricted by weather conditions. With the addition of the indoor tennis building, the OKC Tennis Center expects to host over annual 60 tournaments, plus classes and events for tennis players of all ages.
The indoor tennis center was designed, manufactured and constructed by Legacy Building Solutions. Like all Legacy buildings, it is a tension fabric structure with a rigid steel frame. The 125x300-foot building is fully insulated and features a white interior liner, which reflects the LED lighting system to provide bright, even lighting over all six courts.
“This building was really designed to create an enjoyable place for anyone to play tennis,” said Ben Fox, president and CEO of Legacy Building Solutions. “The design incorporates cutting-edge features to make it the most inviting environment for many years.”
Legacy partnered with the staff at the OKC Tennis Center on the building’s design, which meets USTA regulations for all levels of tennis play as well as state and local building codes. In addition to the insulation and liner, the building was customized with an HVAC system, large circulation fans and divider curtains.
The outside of the building is a tan fabric with green trim and features three-foot eave extensions on both sides. After building design was completed, Legacy crews installed the building in under 30 days. “It was a priority to get the new building operating quickly, so we could continue our programming,” said Steve Henry, director of recreational programming at OKC. “They were totally committed to doing whatever was necessary to support our project.”
