FACTS:

SITE & DESIGN:
The tennis stadium takes advantage of its unique Creekside location, featuring expansive views of Howard’s Creek, The Old White TPC and the mountains beyond while offering spectators an engaging viewing experience. The architecture references the rich architectural history of The Greenbrier campus through the creation of a colonnade at the stadium entrances and other historical references.
 

The unique U-shaped bowl takes advantage of panoramic views of the natural surroundings. It also creates a special opportunity to establish the multi-functional plaza, west of the court, to accommodate hospitality tents with immediate access to the court. This flexible space can also be used for additional grandstand seating capacity. For a premier tennis event, the facility can offer up to 400 corporate loge seats. The site is also designed for additional concession spaces and will be broadcast-ready with camera pits and a camera area. Professional-grade lighting will also be used.


“It’s been a real pleasure to match the rich sporting heritage at The Greenbrier with a unique professional-level stadium to enhance the tennis viewing experience for patrons,” said Matt Rossetti, President. “The beautiful natural setting is a real asset to the design that we don’t normally encounter. It will be a stand-out experience for Greenbrier guests and players and will continue its tradition as one of the finest sporting resorts in the U.S.”
