    Holt Tennis Courts

    The home of Hamline's men's and women's tennis

    The Holt Tennis Courts provide a superior playing surface conveniently located near the heart of campus. The facility's six courts are open to the community when not in use by Piper teams.

    The courts also offer an opportunity to learn more about Hamline history. The entrance to Holt Tennis Courts from the east bears a cement marker imprinted with "Alumni Way," which refers to a path on the east side of campus that once linked the university's athletic fields with the rest of campus.

    Alumni Brenda Stoddard Martinson ’93 and Wade Martinson ’93 credit Holt Tennis courts with more than just improving their long game. Both played tennis at Hamline (Wade when men's tennis was a club sport).

    "We met during our freshman year because our roommates were dating," the couple, now married, recounted. "They thought we’d make a great couple and conveniently brought us together on many occasions. It turned out that we had a lot in common. Many dates occurred on the Hamline tennis courts. Our roommates didn’t last the year, but we’ve been together ever since."

    Piper Athletics

    There is more than a century of athletic tradition at Hamline, starting back in 1895 when Hamline played the world’s first intercollegiate five-man basketball game. Since then, Hamline student-athletes have participated in more than 250 All-American performances or been named All-American in their sport.

    Piper athletes love their sport, want to play in a competitive environment, and value a school that fosters both their academic and athletic success.
