The Dan Magill Tennis Complex has long stood as a beacon of excellence in collegiate tennis. With a total of 16 courts (12 outdoor and four indoor) and a total seating capacity of more than 5,000 fans, it is one of the largest on-campus tennis facilities in the country. The ever-evolving complex underwent a $7.5 million development and renovation project in 2002 that included the construction of brand-new clubhouses for the men's and women's programs. In 1991, the complex received lights thanks to the generous support of Oscar-winning actress and Athens native, Kim Basinger. Pictured above is Henry Feild Stadium, the central portion of the complex, with the men's clubhouse overlooking Court 1. Regarded as one of the best collegiate tennis facilites in America, the complex has hosted the Men's NCAA Championships a total of 26 times, most recently in 2010. It played host to 13 NCAA Championship in a row from 1977-89. In 2006, the NCAA opted to have one combined site for the men's and women's tennis championships. Georgia has served as a host for the combined NCAA Tennis Championships in 2007, 2010 and it will return to Athens again in 2012.
Five of Georgia's six National Championships in men's tennis and one of the two women's NCAA titles were won on their home courts at the Magill complex. The complex has also served as host to the Women's NCAA Championships five times (1993, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2010). Aside from Georgia's best players, the Magill Tennis Complex has hosted classic matchups featuring such stars as John McEnroe and the Bryan brothers. Former Bulldog All-American John Isner is having a successful professional career ranked in the top 20 in the world. Current Bulldog Chelsey Gullickson captured the 2010 NCAA singles title at the Magill Tennis Complex and went on to play in the US Open in singles and doubles.
