ACU students and members of the Student Rec and Wellness Center are now able to rent tennis rackets from the front desk.
Travis Stevens, supervisor of the SWRC, came up with the idea for providing tennis rackets.
Stevens said, “I love playing tennis. I tried to come up and play and noticed we didn’t have any rackets. So I forced Kerri Hart, my boss, to use part of the budget to purchase the tennis rackets and tennis balls.”
Brookelee Galle, junior Ad/PR major from Eula, works at the front desk of the SWRC. Galle said, “We got requests at least twice a week from members for tennis rackets – now that we have them, people come in daily to rent them.”
The new rackets are Wilson brand tennis rackets. Stevens said, “They’re so nice, I want to steal them- but I won’t.”
