For decades, Union sponsored men's and women's tennis as an intercollegiate sport, but the programs were dropped following the 1998-99 season. But thanks to a partnership between the city of Barbourville and Union, the school was able to receive funding to renovate its four existing tennis courts as well as build two more, giving the school six courts.
With the construction of the new courts, the way was paved to re-establish tennis as a school-sponsored sport.
Four of the courts are located on either side of the Mahlon Miller Science Center off of Johnson Lane, while the other two courts are adjacent to Jerry W. Carey Baseball Stadium and Burch/Nau Field.
