    Facilities Home

    The Dellora A. and Lester J. Norris Aquatics Center includes a 750,000-gallon, 50-meter-by-25-yard pool with movable walls that run on a track system, enabling the pool to be custom-fitted. The complex, which includes an innovative heat recycling system, also features an electronic scoreboard and seating for 800 spectators.

    The facility also includes the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion and the Ivan Combe Tennis Center, located adjacent to the Norris Aquatics Center. The sports pavilion features a jogging track, three basketball courts, four racquetball and three squash courts, a weight room and lounge areas. The tennis center features six indoor tennis courts.

    Large windows on the running track provide a view of picturesque Lake Michigan. The facility also features an outdoor patio and sundeck that overlook the beach and Lake Michigan. The aquatics center has been the site of numerous competitions, including the United States Swimming Elite National training camp and 1999's Swim Meet of Champions featuring the USA National Team against the Big Ten All-Stars.
