Closure Notice

The University has a great responsibility to its students, faculty and staff when considering the return to full operations. We are ready and eager to provide the UVA community with fitness and recreational opportunities once the University is able to return to comprehensive operations safely and effectively. We are privileged to support this University and we believe in its greater mission. We're all in this together! If you have questions, please reach out to

When we initially open, we will start with the fitness area at the AFC and the pool at NGRC. The hours and experience will be modified to ensure safety for students, members and staff. We will announce opening details as soon as possible.

Courts Around Grounds

When you are on Grounds, you are never far from racquet sport courts. The primary tennis facility is Snyder Tennis Center, located on central Grounds. We have 13 lit tennis courts there that are open for recreational play most of the time and reservable for IM-Rec Sports members. We also have 4 tennis courts at the Dell off of Emmet Street. 

For indoor racquet sports, we offer table tennis, racquetball and squash. Racquetball courts are at both, Slaughter Recreation Center and North Grounds Recreational Center. Table Tennis tables can be found at Slaughter and North Grounds as well as the AFC during the summer. We have squash courts at North Grounds as well as the championship-venue McArthur Squash Center located at the Boar's Head Resort.
