CSU tennis practices at new facility

COLUMBUS, Ga.  – For the first time, the Columbus State University tennis programs took the court at the recently finished Cooper Creek Tennis Center late last week.

The expansion is still in progress, however, the courts are complete allowing the Cougars and Lady Cougars to practice at the site for the first time.

“We are extremely lucky to be able to have this facility,” said head coach Evan Isaacs. “This wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA) and the support of everyone at Columbus State.

“I can’t wait for the season to start, so we can show off this fabulous complex and continue the success of the CSU tennis programs.”

Construction at the Cooper Creek Tennis Center is in its final phase. Seven acres of land has been cleared to make room for the new expansion. In addition to the 12 new hard courts and nine clay courts, CSU partnered with PlaySight, a video component with live streaming capabilities that will transform its home court into a fully interactive practice site. A new clubhouse has also been built, providing locker rooms for the two programs as well as coaches’ offices and new offices for CORTA.

Columbus State will begin its fall season this month, including a tournament at the Cooper Creek Tennis Center.
