In 1987, the campus tennis courts located in the center of campus were officially named the Beerman Tennis Complex. The complex was named for Dave Beerman, who had helped to popularize the sport of tennis in the Lakeland area. Originally, the renovations and upgrades were to take place during the summer of 1987; however, the timetable was moved forward and construction was completed by January 1987 in time for the Women's Tennis season. As part of the renovation, three old tennis courts were resurfaced and two additional courts were added for a total of five courts. Lighting was also improved for all of the courts. By 2012, the complex had been torn down to make way for a new green space common area for students to be called Mr. George's Green after Publix founder George Jenkins. A new tennis complex was built to the northeast of campus and was named in honor of benefactor Wynee Warden in 2012.
