Murr Center

Harvard's Murr Center opened in May of 1998. While the building houses the state-of-the-art facilities for the squash and tennis teams, it services the entire intercollegiate program. It is a centrally-located home for the department's administration, and also houses a newly-revamped strength and conditioning facility that serves as a training ground for Harvard's 42 varsity teams. The dedication plaque in the front lobby reads "Michael C. Murr '73, MBA '75, Longtime friend of Harvard, whose vision and generosity offer new generations of Harvard men and women the opportunity to realize their athletic potential." The Murr Center tennis courts, a state-of-the-art complex complete with spectator seating, received a 1999 USTA Facility Award which recognizes high standards in public tennis facilities. Its six indoor courts, combined with the 18-court Beren outdoor facility gives the tennis teams arguably the finest facilities in the Northeast. The Murr Center also houses 16 international-size squash courts, giving Harvard a home deserved of its stature as one of the nation's top programs. Now Harvard boasts the finest college squash facility in the country, complete with five feature courts that accommodate close to 1,000 spectators. And its location, adjacent to Harvard Stadium, ties it into the framework of Harvard's athletic landscape. For more than six decades, squash events took place at Hemenway Gymnasium near the Law School. But with the sport changing to softball in recent years and with the old Hemenway Courts being of smaller size, neither Crimson squad had been able to host a match and the teams even traveled off campus to practice on regulation courts.
