Brigade Sports Complex - Indoor Tennis and Hockey
The U.S. Naval Academy recently dedicated and opened the Tose Family Tennis Center and the entire Thornton D. and Elizabeth S. Hooper Brigade Sports Complex during the fall of 2007. The tennis portion of the facility, named after Maurice ('78) and Terri Tose and their family, features six indoor and six outdoor tennis courts, with the indoor hard courts encompassing some 49,000 square feet.
The outdoor courts include the Fluegel-Moore Tennis Stadium, named after Rick ('61) and Donna Fluegel and Bill ('61) and Sandra Moore, while one indoor court has been dedicated in the name of James ('58) and Rosemary Adkins.
"Our new indoor tennis facility will be a tremendous addition for our team training, as well as a draw for future recruits," said Navy head coach John Officer. "The facility is first class and already has to be considered one of the finest in the country."
Located across the Severn River and adjacent to the Naval Academy Golf Course, the 150,000-square foot facility was privately funded and built at a cost of $18.5 million. In addition to the tennis wing of the complex, it also includes ice hockey and rugby venues, an indoor hitting, chipping and putting facility for the golf team and club members, a fitness center, a restaurant, the pro shop for the golf course, athletic training rooms, numerous locker rooms for all of the Navy and visiting teams, office space for the various coaches and meeting rooms for each of the programs.
