NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center was honored with the award for "Best Metal Building" in the July 2010 issue of Metal Architecture Magazine.

The complex was renovated in 2008 with the help of generous donations from Sam Heyman '60 and estate of the late Joseph Cullman III. The project included four new tennis courts in addition to the four existing courts, with team locker rooms, a team room, and coaches' offices. The spacious lobby leads to an intimate viewing area with seats open directly to the courts.

The state-of-the-art facilities have boosted recruitment levels and increased opportunities to host major tournaments. Last fall, it was the site of the 2009 ITA Nationals and received rave reviews from players and coaches.
