Warrior Tennis began their first practices on the courts of the Country Club of Indianapolis. We are grateful that the team also played their Home matches on those same courts.
In the fall of 1999, Ty Emmick entered Covenant as a freshman and he wanted to play tennis. His father Tom, a retired Lily executive, inquired in our office as to how much it would cost to build tennis courts. Tom was told, “We don't know, but we will find out.” When given a number, Tom wrote a check and the Covenant tennis program was enabled.
While the courts were built during the fall of 2000, the boys played all Away matches that year. The courts were dedicated to Ty's grandparents and the girls team first used the courts for the spring of 2001 season.
