Vande Poel - Heeringa Tennis Stadium Courts
The college's top-notch athletic facilities were joined by a new outdoor tennis complex in 2012. Consisting of 12 courts, as well as an officials' shelter and elevated seating for spectators, the Vande Poel-Heeringa Stadium Courts are providing Hope athletes an outstanding facility for intercollegiate competition. It is also serving community tennis enthusiasts and is the home of the Hope Tennis Academy.
The courts are named for Earle Vande Poel '35 and George Heeringa '36, doubles partners on the Hope tennis team in the 1930s, and made possible by a leadership gift from the Ted '72 and Barb '73 Etheridge family.
The new courts are located close to Hope's DeWitt Tennis Center which features six indoor courts.
The largest single fundraising effort in the college’s history,
the $175 million A Greater Hope comprehensive campaign will
