Two-Building Tennis Center Expansion

The nearly 50-year-old Leftwich Tennis Center in Audubon Park, Memphis, TN, needed a refresh. Kirby provided a tailored two-building expansion using gable symmetrical framing systems. The front sidewall of the existing structure attaches to one of the building additions. Leftwich Tennis Center is now the largest of its kind within hundreds of miles – worthy of attracting major national tennis tournaments.

The 88,402 sf facility includes an elevated viewing platform for 12 indoor tennis courts and an open rooftop patio that overlooks 24 outdoor courts. Space for locker rooms, offices, training areas, and a pro shop were incorporated into the design.

Aside from functionality, the Leftwich Tennis Center was designed using a combination of elements to enhance its appearance. R-Panel walls in a special tri-color arrangement match the surrounding landscape and courts to provide a cohesive look, and Kirby’s Loc Seam 360 roof system encloses each building addition.
