As part of the West Campus Tennis Recreation Center and Sports Activity Fields project, construction of the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex (HTRC) was completed in the summer of 2006 and the building officially opened July 31, 2006.
The complex is used by the Hawkeye men’s and women’s tennis, field hockey and soccer teams, as well as students and the public for general recreation. Along with eight indoor courts and 12 outdoor courts, the facility includes sports medicine facilities, team and public locker rooms, meeting rooms and video rooms. The building also houses Iowa tennis offices, a reception area and an Indoor Turf Area, utilized by the Hawkeye field hockey and soccer teams.
The state-of-the-art facility has Playsight with six smart courts, which provide fully interactive and shareable events. The smart courts are a fully automated court monitoring system that tracks everything, overall stats, analysis of strokes, serve speed, instant video, replay, and 3D tactical review. The Iowa tennis program live streams its matches on the eight indoor and six outdoor courts so fans can watch the matches live on the internet from around the globe.
The facility hosted the 2008 Big Ten Men’s Tennis Championships, 2010 Big Ten Women’s Tennis Championships, and 2015 Big Ten Men’s Singles and Doubles Championships. The HTRC will also serve as host of the 2018 Big Ten Men’s Tennis Championships.
In 2009, the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex received the Iowa Tennis Association Facility of the Year Award. In addition, it also received the USTA Missouri Valley Facility of the Year Award. The Missouri Valley is comprised of the states of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa.
For the general public, there is Fitness West – a 2,700 square foot fitness area, the Indoor Turf Area for intramural and club sports teams and a 3,500 square foot Touch The Earth Outdoor Rental & Resource Center.
