University, City of Auburn dedicate new tennis facility

Tennis Center Dedication

The City of Auburn and Auburn University dedicated the new Yarbrough Tennis Center on Friday, Nov. 2. with a ceremony and tours of the complex.

The tennis center, which broke ground in August 2006 and was completed in June of 2007, is a shared facility between the City of Auburn and Auburn University. Home to the Auburn men’s and women’s tennis teams, the facility features six indoor courts, 12 outdoor courts with stadium seating and 16 clay courts. The Yarbrough Tennis Center also houses a pro shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, concessions and a meeting area.

“This outstanding facility is a result of the hard work and dedication of numerous people from the City of Auburn and Auburn University,” said Auburn Athletics Director Jay Jacobs. “One of the finest tennis facilities in the Southeastern Conference, the Yarbrough Tennis Center will be a tremendous asset for the men’s and women’s tennis programs at Auburn for years to come.”

Annual memberships are currently available for purchase. For additional information about the dedication or for membership information, please contact the Auburn Parks & Recreation Department at (334) 501-2930.
