Univ. of Georgia - Facilities
      The Dan Magill Tennis Complex When it comes to facilities, the University of Georgia tennis programs are second to none. Many visiting coaches have tabbed the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on the UGA campus as “the best in the nation.” Georgia played host to the 1994, 2004, 2005 and 2007 NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. In 1994, the Bulldogs delighted the home crowd by winning their first NCAA team title. Georgia beat Stanford, 5-4, in front of 3,117 fans. Evolution The first tennis courts on campus were located east of the Arch alongside Broad Street at the turn of the century.  In the 1930s and 1940s, there were six red clay courts in front of LeConte Hall, where the Journalism-Psychology complex is today. Since then, there have been several projects that have helped make this facility one of the best in the land: 1958: Georgia’s tennis facility was relocated in the spring when six rubico (dirt) courts were constructed.   1968: Georgia changed to a hard surface as the courts were converted to Grass-tex. 1977: The current Henry Feild Stadium (4,500) was built and named for the late Henry Feild, the Bulldogs’ No. 1 player in 1964-66.  Feild died in an automobile accident in January of 1968. Georgia began to play host to numerous national tournaments including a 13-year run of the NCAA Championships (1977-89). 1980: Thanks to the generosity of alumnus Lindsey Hopkins, Jr., Georgia’s 1,200 seat indoor facility was built.  1984: The Joe Heldmann Pavilion was constructed along with the men’s Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame. 1986: The Mid-Court grandstand was added. 1987: Tournament headquarters was built behind court four plus a locker room and press room were added. 1988: An electronic scoreboard was added to  the stadium by court one thanks in part to alumnus Alfred E. Thompson.   1989: A restaurant pavilion was constructed adjacent to the first three courts.  1991: Actress Kim Basinger, an Athens native, was largely responsible for the addition of lights to Henry Feild Stadium.  1992: A new press box was added atop the grandstand of the upper courts. 1993: At the 1993 NCAA Men’s Championships, the entire tennis facility was named the Dan Magill Tennis Complex for the legendary Georgia coach. 1994: A renovated pavilion area adjacent to court one was completed. Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 1999: A new electronic scoreboard/message center was added, allowing fans to follow the action on all six courts. 2003: New men’s and women’s tennis clubhouses along with 12 new courts completed. 2004: Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 2005: Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 2007: Georgia played host to NCAA Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships for first time in same year.
