University of Alabama Adapted Athletics has officially opened the Parker-Haun Tennis Facility, the only collegiate tennis facility in the nation for adapted student-athletes.
Named in recognition of a $500,000 gift from the Parker and Haun families, the new 3,835-square-foot tennis facility is adjacent to the student recreation courts managed by University Recreation. The space includes locker rooms, restrooms, a trainer’s room and offices for the coaching staff. In addition to the gift from the Parker and Haun families, the facility received $370,000 in gifts from 21 donors.
“Our champion student-athletes in adapted athletics now have a championship-caliber facility in which to train and compete,” said UA President Stuart Bell. “Through the dedicated support of the Parker and Haun families and all who generously donated, our program will continue to set the standard of excellence for collegiate adapted athletics.”
