Hi
I'd like to embark on constructing an indoor tennis facility. I have $60k saved in the bank. That should be enough :) I am an avid player and think this is a seriously cunning plan.

The USTA tennis assoc. has a building page, but it is only an existing facility assistance page?

Here

I'd like to build an indoor, 3 or 4 court membership, coaching facility. maybe /w gym and personal training also.

We had a tournament at the Boar's Head, once, and it was a great venue.
I'd like a virtual replica.

Here

Thanks

This company builds them in England, and the pictures speak volumes.

Thx speed. I live in Wilmington, North Carolina, USA, unfortunately. Any suggestions?
Could I acquire this facility's blueprints? Maybe do a mission impossible break-in to their main office , or is a request a simple emailing practical? How do I fish for a good building company to do it?

I would begin by calling up some local construction companies specifically those that can build a clear span building of a height of say 130-160ft at the apex. That should be enough to accommodate some lobs and however many feet in length to give you enough courts. Don't forget to allow 30-50ft from the baselines unless you're planning to put in stands for spectators
