Located on the UCLA campus just west of Pauley Pavilion and south of Drake Stadium, the Los Angeles Tennis Center is one of the premier facilities in the nation for college tennis. The UCLA men’s team has called the LATC home since 1985, while the Bruin women made it their primary facility in 1997. The LATC was the first large-scale outdoor tennis stadium in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. It was officially dedicated on May 20, 1984, just in time to host the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships and the 1984 Olympic Games. Since then, the LATC has hosted two more NCAA Women’s Championships (1987 & ’88), the NCAA Men’s Championships (1997) and the World Beach Volleyball Championships (1997).
