Salem Academy and College Dedicates New Tennis Center

On August 23, 2016, the eve of the first day of classes, the Salem Academy and College community was invited to a campus-wide picnic followed by the official dedication of the Bert Lain Tennis Center, the fulfillment of a dream.

The new facility features twelve new tennis courts with state-of-the-art surfacing, new aluminum bleachers, benches, hydration stations, vinyl-coated fencing, and a crosswalk with two entry gateways. 

Salem Academy and College to Break Ground for New Tennis Center

Salem Academy and College will break ground for a new tennis facility on Wednesday, December 2, at 4:00 pm.

“The deteriorating condition of our tennis courts has necessitated the planning of a new facility, which will provide a much-improved space in which our student-athletes will practice and compete,” said D. E. Lorraine Sterritt, President of Salem Academy and College.

A new tennis center was announced as a priority in Salem’s Women of Purpose campaign in March 2015.
