Mathes Tennis Center

Mathes Tennis Center

Dedicated in 2005, the Mathes Tennis Center (pictured left) is one of the most recent additions to the athletic facilities at Milligan College. It is located on the south edge of campus and contains a clubhouse with office space, restrooms, showers and an observation deck overlooking six lighted courts. Each court conforms to collegiate tournament standards.

After his days competing as a student-athlete at Milligan, Head Coach Ryan Reynolds has used the Mathes Tennis Center as his teams' home for six Appalachian Athletic Conference regular season titles (2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016 for the women, and 2013 for the men). The women's team peaked in the 2014 season, climbing as high as No. 13 nationally. The Buffaloes made it into the National Championships round of 16 that season.

Driving Directions
After entering the front entrance to Milligan, continue up the hill through the main part of campus. Once you pass Gregory Center on your right, take a right-hand turn and continue down a short hill into a parking lot. Navigate your way left through the parking lot and enter another smaller parking lot with the Baker Faculty Office Center on your right. The tennis center will be straight ahead.
