Downing Howell Tennis Courts

DESCRIPTION: The Downing Howell Tennis Courts (6 lighted) are home to the Oglethorpe University men’s and women’s tennis teams. The courts are named after the grandson of G. Arthur Howell Jr. who was a generous contributor and supporter of the Oglethorpe tennis teams as well as a member of the Oglethorpe Board of Trustees. Howell’s son Peter is currently the head coach of the men’s and women’s tennis programs at Oglethorpe.  The university dedicated the courts in 2010. The courts have served as host for the 1994 and 2004 SCAC Tennis Championships. In addition, the facility frequently plays host to matches as part of the ITA South Regional Championships when that event is hosted by Emory University.
