The Iowa Tennis Association honored the Hawkeye Tennis & Recreation Facility, home of both the men’s and women’s Iowa tennis teams, as Facility of the Year Award on Monday.

Along with the accolade, the facility also earned the Missouri Valley Facility of the Year award from the U.S. Tennis Association.

Built as part of the $12 million West Campus Project that updated the playing fields for three sports — field hockey, soccer, and tennis — and opened in 2007, the facility houses both indoor and outdoor courts, as well as an indoor turf field and offices for all three sports. There is also a workout area available to students.

“This award reflects outstanding efforts by our athletics department and the Department of Recreational Services, as well as the architectural and design teams,” Iowa men’s tennis head coach Steve Houghton in a statement. “The facility has already greatly enhanced our men’s and women’s programs and has provided a great venue for the university and local tennis community.”
