Currey Tennis Center
The Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Tennis Center is a varsity athletics facility made available for use by members, students, and groups. Effective Jan. 1, 2020, changes to operations will be implemented to maintain a level of access for members while also better serving our varsity student-athletes and reducing the aggregate wear-and-tear and substantial maintenance required under the previous model.
We continuously evaluate the facility operations and policies to ensure that the needs of our varsity programs and student-athletes are accommodated and receive priority in this regard.
If you have a group or event rental request, please contact Tom.Howard@vanderbilt.edu.
