Kidd Field, UTEP

Built in the early 1930s, Kidd Field has been home to several All-Americans, national champions, national record-holders and Olympians. Named after UTEP (then Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy) professor and athletic booster John W. Kidd, the facility was shared with the UTEP football team until 1962, when the facility became sole home to the track and field team. The track features a recently finished, eight-lane Mondo Track, the same surface used for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. The track was made possible by generous donations from Wayne and Russ Vandenburg of EPT Management and Mark Fry. In 2003, UTEP renovated its offices and locker room and also added a student-athlete lounge. The lit facility also houses throws and jumps arenas, making Kidd Field one of the top track-only complexes in the country. Improvements continue to reshape the complex, as new aluminum bleachers have been added in 2002. Kidd Field will be the site of two home meets this season. The Miners will open the outdoor campaign with the Springtime Invitational on April 2 and then will host the highly-regarded Spira Invitational on April 16. Record times have always been synonymous with Kidd Field. At the 1994 UTEP Invitational, former Miner Olapade Adeniken set the Kidd Field 100-meter record, a blazing 9.95 seconds. Obadele Thompson, then just a freshman, set the world junior 100 record in the same race with a time of 10.08.

Chamizal National Memorial

The Chamizal Treaty of 1963 was a milestone in diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States. Chamizal National Memorial was established to commemorate this treaty which resulted in the peaceful settlement of a century-long boundary dispute between the neighboring countries. Far more than mere acreage, Chamizal is an idea, a dynamic process, dedicated to furthering the spirit of understanding and goodwill between two nations that share one border. Chamizal National Memorial serves as an open door to increase visitor awareness to continually value cooperation, diplomacy and cultural values as a basic means to conflict resolution. Chamizal provides visitors with ample opportunity to better understand, not only other cultures, but their own cultural roots as well.

The Sportspark is swiftly moving to become the region’s premier athletic complexes, with its lighted T-ball, softball and baseball fields. The park can easily accommodate a 200-team tournament, with games played during the day and at night. Concessions are available. More important yet, plans are to expand the park to include tournament-approved soccer fields in the not too distant future.
El Paso Youth Tennis Center

It is the mission of the El Paso Tennis Development Foundation to provide academic opportunities to El Paso area youth with emphasis on the disadvantaged. These opportunities will be offered through tennis proficiencies attained at the El Paso Youth Tennis Center. Our kids belong ON our courts… not in them. Studies show that more youth commit crimes and are victims of crimes during the hours between 2 PM and 6 PM than any other time of the day. During these critical hours, many unsupervised youth engaged in destructive behavior, including alcohol consumption, gang activities, and drug abuse. A positive alternative to the negative challenges facing our kids today is organized and supervised physical activites. At the El Paso Development Center, programs will be provided for all skill levels, beginner, intermediate, advanced, and the physically and mentally challenged. Scholarships will be offered at two levels: 1. Tennis instruction and the necessary clothing and equipment for the socio-economically disadvantaged youth 2. College tuition to a limited group of dedicated students who meet the moral, academic, and athletic standards necessary to compete at the highest levels.
