Unusable Tennis Courts; UNR Rifle Trains In Shipping Containers

Part two of our series on UNR's sports programs and facilities and how they impact each other. Reno Public Radio's Esther Ciammachilli toured the campus with Athletic Director Doug Knuth. This segment features the crumbling and unusable tennis complex and the shipping containers that inconspicuously house the rifle team's training and competition site.

These shipping containers are home to UNR's rifle training and competition site.
Here is a panoramic view of the dirt lot where the rifle team practices and competes. Notice the shipping containers (left). The container in the left foreground is an actual storage locker.

Next week on Beyond the Headlines, the final installment of our series on UNR's sports programs and facilities. We'll take a look at a complex located across the track from the school. 

Esther Ciammachilli is a former part-time broadcaster at KUNR Public Radio.
