    FLAMES TENNIS FACILITY

    HOME OF UIC FLAMES TENNIS

    The Flames Tennis Facility acts as the home venue for the UIC men's and women's tennis programs.

    UIC tennis moved to their new home for the 1996-97 season, after construction was finished in the summer of 1996. The Flames Tennis Facility was built in conjunction with a complete $9 million athletic facility renovation on the South Side of campus, which includes baseball and softball stadiums, a varsity soccer field, four intramural multi-purpose fields, four sand volleyball courts and a lighted 7/8 mile jogging path.

    Located behind the Physical Education Building, the Flames Tennis Facility boasts six hard courts, fully lighted with seating for over 100 spectators. This state-of-the-art complex also features a compelling view of Chicago's beautiful skyline including the spectacular Sears Tower.
