Vande Poel-Heeringa Courts
The 12 courts of the Vande Poel-Heeringa Stadium Courts are available for competition, instruction and casual play. Thanks to a leadership gift from the Ted ’72 and Barb ’73 Etheridge family, construction was completed in 2012.
In 2013, the stadium won the Outdoor Tennis Court of the Year award, chosen by the American Sports Builders Association. It is home to the men’s and women’s tennis teams and is located close to the DeWitt Tennis Center, the college’s indoor tennis facility. The courts also provide an officials’ shelter and elevated seating for spectators.
The facility was named for Earl Vande Poel ’35 and George Heeringa ’36, a former Hope doubles tennis team.
