The new Denver Tennis Park facility is intended to serve the needs for underprivileged youth programs, and Denver Public Schools and University of Denver tennis students by providing an indoor and outdoor tennis facility with (7) interior courts and (8) exterior courts. Denver Tennis Park is a non-profit organization with a focus on engaging youth in tennis. Located within the Denver South High School campus, the schematic design refined and further developed the existing master plan study, with program updates and site-specific solutions to challenges presented with existing drainage issues, access and circulation, and limited available space.
The building features administrative offices, locker rooms, fitness areas, multiuse space and viewing areas. An entry plaza was designed to provide space for gatherings, xeriscape plantings, a variety of seating and bicycle parking. The exterior courts incorporate sports lighting, spectator viewing areas, shade canopies, and a halfcourt practice high wall.
Services performed include City of Denver Entitlement process, schematic design through construction administration.
