The USF Varsity Tennis complex was established at its current location in 1977 with six courts. It has seen numerous improvements since its conception, with  several changes and additions occuring within the last couple of years. In 1996, six new hard courts were added, making a total of 12, which allowed convenient practice and match scheduling to accommodate both the men’s and women’s tennis teams. All 12 courts are individually fenced in to prevent interruption of play.

The latest improvement to the tennis facility includes new grass in the infield with grandstand bleachers and a gazebo. The grass, the same used at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla., is tifnay 419 hybrid bermuda grass which was grown on a farm in Georgia.
