Directions to Principia College Indoor Courts
Due to flooding, the route to Principia College requires using Fessler Rd off of Route 3. Fessler Rd is a left turn off of Route 3. Look for a brown shed on the left side of the road as a landmark. Fessler Rd is after the brown metal shed. Once you arrive at the college there is a guard gate. Stop at the guard gate and tell them you are there to play tennis. The Hexberg indoor courts are straight ahead and the first right turn on campus. Click on "more info" for a link to a Google map.
