Challengers Tennis Facility

  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Challengers Boys & Girls Club
  • Killefer Flammang Architects

The Challengers Tennis facility is an innovative addition to the existing South Central LA Boys & Girls Club. The new facility includes 4 new courts and a pavilion. The two-story interior has one large multi-purpose clubroom, a snack bar, restrooms and an office plus two levels of bleacher seating and viewing stands. A solar array, comprised of all glass thin film silicon modules, covers nearly 85% of the building roof. The system provides enough power to meet the facilities’ needs at peak hours, with excess power being sold back to the utility company at off-peak times. The reduction in greenhouse gas emissions has been estimated at about 40 tons per year.
