In October of 2014, David and Eleanor Ignat donated the Middlebury Indoor Tennis facility to the Addison Community Athletics Foundation (ACAF) to own, manage, and support as a nonprofit organization. David and Eleanor opened the facility in April of 2001 and have been operating it since that time and now serve on ACAF’s board of directors. Our facility is open to the public and offers three indoor tennis courts, locker rooms, as well as a small pro shop. We also have a full kitchen, viewing area, and private conference room perfect for hosting special events and tournaments throughout the year. Many of ACAF’s outreach programs take place at Middlebury Indoor Tennis including our Sunday Family Play hours, Youth Tennis Jamboree, and Family Fun Nights. Local college, Middlebury College and high schools utilize our courts and space to host practices and matches while in season.
The rubber-based wet-lay surface is a medium speed 10-coat Plexicushion Prestige System. Plexicushion's shock absorbing qualities minimize stress and fatigue. In May 2007 the Australian Open decdided to switch to Plexicushion from their native product, ReBound Ace, for 2008. MIT's surface is identical to the one chosen for the Alexis Boss Tennis Center at Dartmouth, including installation by the same contractor, Vt Recreational Surfacing and Fencing.
