For the Love of the Field

For many University of Texas at Austin alumni, the mention of UT RecSports brings back fond memories of playing and competing at the Whitaker Fields and Tennis Complex. Today, nearly 260,000 participation hours take place at the complex each year, making it one of the most essential recreation facilities for UT students, and the only outdoor recreation space of its kind for the campus community.

The complex also provides a place for students to learn about winning, losing, working together and being leaders as they take on teams and play their way to championships. Despite its popularity, the last renovation of this space was more than 30 years ago and the complex has been in need of a major renovation.
