The center is named for Marcia Anderson M.D. and her husband "Buck," who are long-time Gallatin Valley ranchers. Through Marcia Anderson's generous contributions the Bobcat Tennis Center provides quality year round facilities for MSU student-athletes and Bozeman tennis players of all ages.
The permanent structure houses 4 indoor courts and a 27,000 square-foot foundation, and replaces the previous bubble complex. The new state-of-the-art lighting and heating systems makes the Bobcat/Anderson Tennis Center the best indoor complex on a Big Sky Conference campus, and perhaps one of the finest facilities in the Northwest.
The Center offers the following:
Access to indoor courts year-round
USPTA & PTR certified pros
Court Fee Per Person:
Singles: $6 (.5 hour), $12 (1 hour), $18 (1.5 hour)
Doubles: $3 (.5 hour), $6 (1 hour), $9 (1.5 hour)
