Check out how gorgeous the 6 indoor tennis courts look at the Hope College DeWitt Tennis Center, Holland, Michigan, after we finished installing our LED lighting.

A special shout out to Claire Hallock, the junior from Lakeland, Florida, who is the fifth Flying Dutch women's tennis player to be named an All-American. Hallock, who played No. 1 singles for the Flying Dutch this season, is one of 24 All-America singles players. The other 23 played doubles.

"This accomplishment is well-deserved," head coach Bob Cawood said. "To see her growth over the past three years, going from three singles to two to one, has been awesome. She keeps working hard every single day."

This season, Hallock matched her career-high for singles wins with a 25-3 record. She is tied for third all-time among Flying Dutch players in singles wins. Hallock's 71 career singles wins are sixth most all-time at Hope. As a junior, Hallock earned Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Most Valuable Player honors for the first time.

In addition to supporting the Hope Tennis teams, this prestigious facility is also open to the student body for intramural games, tennis classes or recreational use, and also to the Holland Community. The Professional Tennis Registry rated the DeWitt Tennis Center the National Public Facility of the Year in 2010.
