About the Facility

The Alexis Boss Tennis Center and Alan D. Gordon Pavilion opened in September 2000.  The six-court facility is the home for the Dartmouth men's and women's tennis teams and features a lounge, two public locker rooms, two tennis team locker rooms, mezzanine seating and a team meeting room.

Dartmouth's athletic gem honors Alexis Boss '93, who won All-Ivy recognition in singles and doubles five times before losing a gallant battle to brain cancer in 1995.  The pavilion also recognizes Alan D. Gordon '77, captain of the men's squash team in 1976-77 and also a varsity tennis player.

Alexis Boss Tennis Center and Alan Gordon Pavilion earned Tennis Industry magazine's Court of the Year Honors in March/April 2002.

"We're very fortunate to have a facility like this on our campus. It's allowed us to have a first-class place in which to practice and play and has been a great addition for the local community."  Men's Head Coach Emeritus Chuck Kinyon

"It's a great advantage for our program to be able to play and practice in one of the finest facilities in the country. It makes everything we're trying to do that much better. The Boss Center is a great place to practice and play in. It gives our program a large advantage as we continue to develop our players to their ultimate potential."  Women's Head Coach Bob Dallis
