Parking update 

Fans coming to the Carpenter Cup at Penn’s Meiklejohn Stadium, have to park in Lot #45 (by Levy Tennis Pavilion) off 31st and Chestnut Street.

It is about a 15 minute walk to the stadium.

This is due to construction work going on. So give yourself a little extra time.

Fans can drop people off at the stadium and then drive their car to the parking lot. There are attendants giving directions.
