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
