The Randy Stephens Tennis Center is one of the best tennis facilities in our region, and it’s also being recognized nationally. The United States Tennis Association (USTA) named Randy Stephens Tennis Center one of 33 winners in the its annual Outstanding Facility Awards program, which recognizes excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.
“It means a lot to be recognized on a national level,” said Robin Bateman, Facilities Coordinator II for the Randy Stephens Tennis Center. “This is a huge deal.”
The Center, located at the South Bibb Recreation Complex (7035 Houston Avenue), has 23 full-sized tennis courts (all of which are wheelchair accessible) and features a Musco LED Lighting System. It also features six courts with blended lines for children 10 years and under and eight courts for 5 to 8 years old. There are also courts with pickleball lines. Your Serve Tennis Pro Shop stocks the Center with a large selection of tennis apparel and accessories.
“Having the Randy Stephens Tennis Center in Macon-Bibb has allowed us to hold more tennis tournaments here,” said Tennis and Pickleball Supervisor Sarah Witherspoon. “You name it, we have it.”
