The Ole Miss men's and women's tennis teams are about to get a boost with the renovation/expansion of the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center currently underway.
Renovations to the tennis center, which opened in 1990 in the heart of campus, include reconfiguring the existing building and adding an additional wing on each end.
Once completed, the current building will house head coaches' offices (men and women), assistant coaches' offices (men and women) a stringing room, and visitors' locker rooms.
The existing building will be expanded to include a wing on each end which will house a team locker room and meeting area (one for men and one for women). Fans will be able to walk from the (current) stands on top of the building on a walkway to the top of each of the wings. There will be a covered area with a canvas awning.
The courts themselves have received a new state-of-the-art scoreboard as well as individual electronic scoreboards on each court. Additional plans include new fencing, resurfacing the courts, refurbishing the pavilions and adding the technology to live stream all home matches with cameras on each court.
