SUNY Cortland leaders and State Senator Jim Seward officially opened the college’s new $2 million dollars tennis court and basketball complex Tuesday.
The facility is located next to the college’s Student Life Center and the campus recreation and sports complex.
Seward was instrumental in securing the $2 million in state funding for the project. Seward says investing in SUNY Cortland facilities will help the college recruit students which in turn helps the Cortland economy.
The complex features 16 new tennis courts, two basketball courts, and 50 new parking spaces.
College President Erik Bitterbaum says the new courts are part of the ongoing plans to update and modernize the campus to serve students of the 21st century.
Bitterbaum says the college is now looking to complete renovations of the Moffett Center and update the VanHoesen building as well.
The new tennis courts are available for public use.
