BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland will dedicate and celebrate the grand opening of the McClure Tennis Center on Saturday, April 11, in an event that will feature the Greyhounds hosting the men's and women's teams from Bucknell University.
The eight-court lighted facility was built thanks to an anonymous $3.2-million gift. Located at the Ridley Athletic Complex, ground was broken in the summer of 2014, and work was completed recently to allow Loyola teams to being practicing and playing at the center.
Loyola's new playing center is named in honor of Head Coach Rick McClure who has coached at the school since 1979 and won more than 700 matches.
On Saturday, a reception will commence at 11:30 a.m. with the dedication program starting at 12:30 p.m. Following the conclusion of the ceremony, Loyola will host the Bison in a Patriot League contest. All attendees are also invited to a post-match reception with McClure in the Class of 1968 Suite at Ridley Athletic Complex.
