Situated next to the USA Student Recreation Center and Mitchell Center Parking Lot, the facility consists of two groups of four courts bisected by covered bleachers for spectators. In addition to the bleacher seats, fans can watch Jaguar Tennis Action from the balcony of the Rec Center that overlooks the courts.

Six of the eight courts are equipped with cameras that feed live action to VCRs located in the Jaguar locker rooms. This allows coaches and players to have video taped copies of their performance for instructional purposes.
