The U. announced to the Board of Regents on Friday its plans to build six tennis courts with covered bleacher seating and restrooms, at a cost of nearly $2.5 million.
The courts will be built on Guardsman Way, west of the Eccles Tennis Center and where the school's practice football field used to be.
The outdoor court will resemble the U.'s indoor arrangement, with two banks of three courts and the ability for spectators to watch action on all six courts from elevated seating in the center. The capacity, renderings and donor information were not immediately available Friday.
