Work has begun on Emporia State University’s newest building project — the $3.8 million Kossover Family Tennis Complex, a one-of-a kind facility for tennis in our region.
Anticipated to be complete for fall 2021, the complex will feature six new championship-quality tennis courts — two indoor and four outdoor. The new complex will house the tennis teams’ locker rooms, coach’s office, players’ lounge, student-athlete study area, indoor court viewing deck and outdoor patio. Most importantly, it provides an on-campus, cold-weather tennis training center, a valuable resource that no other MIAA tennis program offers.
Inspired by their passion for tennis, alumni Greg Kossover and Ken Hush partnered with ESU to propel the tennis program forward. Kossover and Hush provided leadership gifts and continue to lead the fundraising efforts for the project.
The spring 2021 schedule is tentatively set to begin the week of March 22. Emporia State, along with the MIAA, will continue to work with local health officials to monitor any changes as the 2021 spring season approaches.
