Mapp Tennis Courts

tennis courts with gold and crimson paint

The Mapp Tennis Courts are located adjacent to Nininger Hall. The facility features six courts.

In the summer of 2015, the courts were repainted with Eagle crimson and gold. New wind screens were added the next year.

The courts were dedicated on April 13, 2014 in honor of Bridgewater College Athletic Hall of Fame member Laura S. Mapp. Mapp coached the women's tennis team from 1961-97 and led the Bridgewater women to 161 wins during that period.

“Laura Mapp spent nearly four decades at Bridgewater College, teaching women to be leaders in the game, the classroom and the community,” said Bridgewater College President Dr. David W. Bushman. “She left an unparalleled legacy at Bridgewater College. We are honored to preserve that legacy into the future by naming the College’s tennis courts after her.”
