Scott Speicher Tennis Center
he Scott Speicher Tennis Center houses 12 lighted hard courts, over 1,000 court level seats, coaching offices, men’s and women’s locker rooms, equipment and storage rooms, a team lounge and a public address system. The growing pride Florida State has for its tennis program and its premier tennis center was honored just after it’s opening in 1994, when the United States Tennis Association (USTA) awarded the structure with its “Top Notch” facility award.
The Speicher Tennis Center was named in honor of Lieutenant Commander Michael Scott Speicher, a graduate of Florida State University. Speicher was considered the first American casualty during Operation Desert Storm, but was later reclassified by the United State’s government as missing in action in 2001 and missing or captured a year later. However, in 2009 Speicher’s remains were found in the Anbar province of Iraq after a nearly 20-year search. The Scott Speicher family was later honored by Florida State at a home football game with a missing man formation flyover from the Navy. By Presidential directive, the facility bears the name the “Scott Speicher Tennis Center.”
