Henry Tennis Center at the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s Momentum Campus.

HELPING THE TAMU-CC TENNIS TEAM
For the tennis team, the 12-court Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center means big changes. According to Steve Moore, Director of Tennis, they will now have the ability to host dual matches, camps, events, and even tournaments. Moore and the entire team are excited about all the possibilities these new courts will bring. “The feeling is electric,” Moore said, calling the center a “borderline masterpiece.”
Mr. Henry has been a long-time supporter of the Islanders’ athletic programs, which competed as an independent from 1998 until the University joined the Southland Conference in 2006. Since then, the Islanders men’s tennis team has dominated the SLC, winning four-straight conference championships and three of the last four conference tournaments.
ACCORDING TO THOMAS J. HENRY
“Since the start of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s NCAA sport’s program, I have been involved in helping them progress their vision. Our community benefits from a university that believes in growth, and through the University’s leadership, I have seen them expand at an exceptional rate.
The Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center is only a portion of a larger endeavor, and I am proud to support the University on this venture. Corpus Christi is my home, and I am honored to be part of the future of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and the Corpus Christi community.”
