We'll never know the answer to that last question

...and I am admittedly biased having lived in Rome for the last 35 years, (after growing up in Fairfax and Rappahannock counties), but I suspect the answer to that question would be yes, as long as the ACC had open bidding for each two year cycle. The facility is very nice and getting better. Wish we were building 12 indoor courts instead of just six, but that would not have flown politically. The facility has hosted the USTA Girls 14-U national Championships the last three years to rave reviews from parents. Berry College, which donated the land for the courts will be developing it's own on-site hotel soon, (flag yet to be announced)
I get it it that Rome is not right at the back door of the Big Four and a little further away from the Big One (UVA), I just encourage some of the naysayers to give it a shot.
