Bruton-Guerry Tennis Center opens

The nationally-ranked Sewanee men and women’s tennis teams will open the newly constructed Bruton-Guerry Tennis Center with a pair of 2:00 p.m. matches against Piedmont, Friday.

Since the summer of 2015, the Bruton-Guerry Tennis Center has been torn down, cleared out, and rebuilt. After months of work, the home of the Sewanee men and women’s tennis teams was finally completed.

The newly opened facility is one of the top tennis venues in all of college athletics. With assistances from the Hamico Foundation, along with many University of the South alums, including former student-athletes Boyd Douglas (C’88) and David Dye (C’90), Bruton-Guerry now features three stadiums (Willett, Conchie’s Corner, and Jim Scott viewing bench), the John Guerry Pavilion, 12 new courts, new fencing, and new windscreens.

On the men’s side, Sewanee enters Friday’s match with a 2-0 record after wins against Tennessee Wesleyan and against Centre.

The No. 29 Tigers have outscored their opponents, 17-1.

On the women’s side, the No. 11 Tigers are currently 2-2 this spring. Sewanee has 9-0 wins against Tennessee Wesleyan and against Centre. The two losses on the schedule came in tough, long matches against No. 2 Emory and No. 13 Washington University.
