Former Tiger Tennis ace helps celebrate new tennis complex

Former Tiger Tennis ace helps celebrate new tennis complex

Thirty years ago, Eve Zimmerman threw herself on newly resurfaced tennis courts at University of the Pacific – and kissed them. That passion brought her back to her alma mater recently to help celebrate the groundbreaking for what is planned as one of the finest tennis facilities on the West Coast, the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center.

Made possible by a $1.5 million gift from Zimmerman, the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center will include 12 courts, a 5,500-square-foot clubhouse, covered player benches, and a new electronic scoreboard. It will occupy a portion of the footprint of the former Amos Alonzo Stagg Memorial Stadium.

“This facility will enable Pacific tennis players to shine as Tigers should,” said Zimmerman, who played for Pacific from 1980 to 1984 and went on to become a world-ranked professional player. Returning to Pacific for Homecoming, she will be making her first visit to the campus since she graduated.
