The Ken Byers Tennis Complex was possible due to the generous donation by Ken Byers of Byers Engineering Company and is home to one of the top collegiate tennis programs in the nation. Opened for the 2013 tennis season Ken Byers Tennis Complex features 10 outdoor courts (six competition and four practice) and a six court indoor facility. The indoor facility retaining the name of Bill Moore Tennis Center from the previous facility features men's and women's coaches offices, men's and women's locker rooms, a team lounge, and seating for 232 spectators. The outdoor facility features a landscaped courtyard area between the four practice courts and Fowler Street. Seating for the outdoor courts is between the Griffin Track and the competition courts allowing spectators to have a view of both competition on the track and action on the tennis courts. This state of the art facility is a great addition to the Georgia Tech tennis program.
