    FACILITIES

    Vandy Christie Tennis Center
    The outdoor matches will be held at the Vandy Christie Tennis Center, located at 2310 Sheridan Rd., Evanston, IL 60208 (Sheridan between Colfax and Noyes). The Vandy Christie Tennis Center was dedicated October 29, 1994 to honor an outstanding alumnus and special representative of Northwestern University. Christie's Northwestern career began as a varsity tennis player in 1955. He returned as the head coach of the men's team from 1976-83 and later became the director of athletic development.
    The Center boasts 15 courts, a pro shop and permanent seating for several hundred spectators. The courts have been home to Wildcat tennis since 1941 and have been the site of four NCAA Championships and 23 Big Ten Championships.

    Combe Tennis Center
    In the event of inclement weather, indoor matches will be held at the Combe Tennis Center, located at 2311 Campus Dr., Evanston, IL 60208 (inside the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion).
    The Center takes its name from former Northwestern tennis player Ivan Combe, who offered the lead donation that made the center a reality. Combe was a member of the men's tennis team from 1931-33 and played on legendary Wildcat coach Paul Bennett's first team.
    Combe houses six courts and each has it's own electronic scoreboard. The main scoreboard, which sits on the center of the south wall, gives a composite score and features an electronic message center. The Intercollegiate Tennis Association named the Combe Tennis Center its Outstanding Facility in 2002.
