Six tennis courts among new additions

The tennis courts pictured above are part of the latest renovations at College of the Canyons, which included $10 million worth of additions to the college's physical education facilities.

The newest physical education building and courts at College of the Canyons will provide more classes and athletic space for students.

The 21,543-square-foot building and six outdoor tennis courts, worth $10 million, allows college officials to offer new classes like badminton, tennis and jujitsu, said Len Mohney, dean of physical education and athletics.

“Now we have a state-of-the-art athletic training room,” Mohney said.

The college plans to hold a “Tennis Block Party” from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday to give the community a glimpse of the six new courts and information on how to sign up for tennis classes.

College officials used state funds and Measure C money to build the courts and the new building.

Local voters passed the $82 million Measure C in 2001.

The expansion gives college officials more conference space.

“(Students) spend a lot of time in the new building,” Mohney said.

College officials designed the previous building to serve a student population of 5,000, college spokesman Bruce Battle said.

The college’s enrollment is now at 25,000.

“It just became too much,” Battle said. College officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the fall of 2008
