From the printed article-"We also have an architect developing designs for a new indoor tennis facility and new indoor softball facility."

Tennis would not need that much room, but softball would need some space and height. Is this just a practice facility for softball or an indoor stadium?


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

I think softball needs to be moved so that Sofield indoor practice field can be expanded.

Could Indoor tennis center could be used by generally student and faculty population???

Could same building do both?

I'm thinking it would be similar to the indoor hitting and pitching facility beside the baseball field. Basically an indoor batting cage not meant for fielding practice.


When will "It's better than what we had" no longer be good enough for App State?

Like how he says they've IDed a spot for the track but didn't didn't say where it was. Probably need to buy stock in weedeater and John Deere mowers before announcing anything.

Tennis and softball are getting moved to the old Watauga HS. That's where they are building the new indoor tennis facility. They are also moving track and field and softball there. I also think there's another sport I'm missing, but those are for sure per our last Yosef Advisory board meeting. They are going to use the area where softball is now for outdoor practice fields. Also, the tennis courts behind the west stands will most likely be parking :) once they move tennis.
