Ashland University recently dedicated the Deborah Liebert Karl Tennis Complex following renovations made possible by a $250,000 donation from Karl, who graduated from Ashland in 1972.
 
“The renovations made to our tennis complex are exceptional,” Athletics Director Al King said. “We've been able to upgrade the facilities in a variety of ways. We've resurfaced the courts, added a sixth court and bleachers and added and upgraded our signage. These changes will enhance the experience of the student-athletes and our fans.”
 
While Karl didn’t play tennis when attending the school, she wanted to improve the school and the facility was in need of upgrades. The facility has already been put to use, with Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference matches taking place before and after the dedication ceremony.
 
We believe this gives us a top-notch facility,” King said. “It expands what we can do – we can practice better, run better matches, thanks to the sixth court and the other amenities we've added, and it gives us the possibility to do more with our camp offerings…Finally, this is a facility that the community can use. This renovation bolsters tennis not just on campus, but in the city of Ashland and the surrounding area."
