Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Perkinston Campus Tennis Court Facility on April 23.  The facility, which includes eight courts made from post-tension concrete, began in March 2013. It includes lights, water fountains and covered benches near the courts, and a building containing restrooms, team locker rooms, coach’s office, storage and meeting rooms.

While the courts are primarily for the tennis team and MGCCC students, they are open to the public during posted hours.
