Site & Design

The tennis stadium takes advantage of its unique Creekside location, featuring expansive views of Howard’s Creek, The Old White 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architectural history of The Greenbrier campus through the creation of a colonnade at the stadium entrances and other historical references.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 is broadcast-ready with camera pits and a camera area. Professional-grade lighting is used when needed.

“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.”

“We all have an awesome time. It’s kind of become a tradition. I feel like The Greenbrier is my home away from home, along with the U.S. Open. I have had such a great time and great experiences there. I love seeing all the fans and familiar faces every year.” – Venus Williams

“It’s so great to see The Greenbrier continue to bring tennis to the forefront at this incredible resort.” – John McEnroe

“I think everyone saw that we really enjoyed it. It’s a chance to interact more with the fans and have a great time. We had a lot of fun and were able to put on a great show for the fans. It’s so beautiful here, and there are so many sports. It’s very special.” - Maria Sharapova

“It’s really beautiful. The weather is crisp in the mountains, and it’s a great place for an event. They treat you really well, and the facilities are fantastic.” – Patrick Rafter
