I'm incredibly excited about the new indoor tennis facility here. Looks like completion date is going to be January or maybe February. It's going to be an awesome thing for our tennis program. It's six indoor tennis courts. It gives us the opportunity to do big things. It gives us the opportunity down the road if we want to bid to host NCAAs or the fall national championships. Basically that is the separation between each court so as you go down through here you can see the six courts. I think the great thing with the insulation that is going to be in here and also the fans that will be at either end is in the summer time you'll be able to blow the hot air out and it will be much cooler in the summer time. In the winter if we happen to have some cold days, it will be warmer in here than it would be outside. The way I would term it is it's about fifteen degrees cooler or warmer than it may be outside. This is the initial surface that being put down here. There will be a second asphalt surface that will go down and then what they do, they make sure everything is level and they put the main surface in which will be exactly like our courts at Spiker. I think from a teaching standpoint it's going to be tremendous for our guys to be able to practice indoors and work on their strokes."
