WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Greenbrier Resort owner Jim Justice announced plans Thursday to build a 2,500-seat tennis stadium next to Howard’s Creek.
Ground has been broken for the 46,000-square-foot facility, called Center Court at Creekside.
“We are so excited to be able to take the already top-of-the-line tennis facilities at The Greenbrier to a whole new level,” Justice said in a news release. “With folks like Pete Sampras as our resident tennis pro emeritus and such legends as tennis Hall of Famer John McEnroe and former world No. 1 Andy Roddick as our guests, it was only right that The Greenbrier should have the premier resort tennis stadium in the U.S. to call its own.”
Justice said the facility should be open by next June. It will be u-shaped with a view of Howard’s Creek.
The Greenbrier will host its third annual Tennis Champions Classic later this month.
