The Helfaer Tennis and Recreation Center is a $2 million student recreation facility that occupies a three-acre site north of West Clybourn Street between North 16th Street and North 17th Street.

The Helfaer Tennis Facility is a championship six-court indoor facility that offers year-round playing and training for men's and women's tennis teams.  Fans can watch Marquette Tennis from the second story windows along the north wall or from courtside bleachers on the north and south walls. The air conditioned facility features two quadrants of three blue and gold lined sport-tred courts, dividing nets, indirect lighting and a digital sound system. The newest addition is the state-of-the-art tennis scoreboard donated by Charles "Chas" Mulcahy and the Milwaukee Tennis Foundation.
