UNM to unveil new tennis stadium

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The University of New Mexico is set to unveil its new tennis stadium.

UNM has scheduled Thursday a grand opening for the McKinnon Family Tennis Stadium near The Pit.

The school hopes the six sunken stadium courts, with TV-quality lights and a large electronic scoreboard, will be a boost for the university’s tennis team.

The McKinnon Center, which will seat around 1,000 fans, comes courtesy of a $1.2 million donation that is part of a $7.5 million gift to the university.
