In 1987, Dr. James Powell and his wife Anne, presented Elon University with a major challenge gift for the construction of an on-campus, 12-court, lighted tennis facility.
The Jimmy Powell Tennis Center consists of 12 hard courts separated into bays of three courts each. The court bays are captured by a 10-foot high, vinyl-coated fence fitted with nine-foot polypropylene wind screens. Evening tennis is made possible with low-level lighting. Each court is equipped with a state-of-the-art intercom system.
Located at the center of the tennis complex is a two-story pavilion that houses a storage area, a concession stand and a viewing deck. From the viewing deck, competition can be observed in any direction, as well as the beautifully landscaped area between the courts. Shrubs and flowerbeds complement the permanent bleachers next to the two stadium courts, while honey locust trees help to shade the grassy seating area.
In 2013 two large scoreboards were added to the facility to enhance the men and women matches. Also in January of 2015 larger locker rooms were renovated for both programs.
