The University of Louisville men's and women's tennis programs are proud to call the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center home. Located directly across from Cardinal Park, the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center currently boasts six indoor courts and eight lighted outdoor courts with electronic scoreboards.
The building also houses men's and women's locker rooms, a training room, player lounge areas and offices to accompany its Deco-Turf surfaced courts. Another special feature of the tennis center is the Wimbledon Room, a conference room overlooking the indoor courts.
The Bass-Rudd Tennis Center served as the host facility for the 2004 Conference USA Women's Tennis Championship, the 2002 and 1997 C-USA Men's Tennis Championships and as a first round site for the 1998 NCAA men's tennis tournament.
Known as one of the best on-campus college tennis faclities in the nation, the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center was awarded the 1995 Kentucky Tennis Association Facility of the Year and the United States Tennis Association College Facility of the Year.
U of L opened the doors to the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center in 1994. The facility is named in honor of Lewis "Sonny" Bass and Mason Rudd, who each donated $500,000 toward its construction.
Aside from being the home for the Cardinals' intercollegiate tennis teams, U of L also offers memberships and daily court time for students, faculty, staff, alumni and other interested parties.
