Midland has a history of building athletic facilities that reflect positively on and provide opportunities for the community. They include:
- Citibank Ballpark (baseball) and Grande Communications Stadium (football and soccer) at the Scharbauer Sports Complex,
- Chaparral Center (basketball) on the campus of Midland College,
- City of Midland Aquatics’ Mabee Memorial Aquatic Center (swimming and diving) and
- The Bill Williams Softball Complex and Freddie and Virginia Ezell Softball Complex.
There are others, but you get the picture. Collectively, those facilities are the reason Midland has been home to Texas League (Double-A professional) baseball, the best in prep regional playoff football and soccer, national diving and junior national swimming meets and countless Amatuer Softball Association national tournaments.
Another facility is being added to Midland’s official roster. The Bush Tennis Center in northwest Midland has its grand opening today. The first phase is now completed, and officials will show off 18 full-size lighted courts, one full-size lighted stadium court, an education room, a pro shop/office area and eight QuickStart courts (or half-size courts that can be used for people new to the game).
