Rains Center

The centerpiece of the Pomona-Pitzer Athletic Department is the Lilliore Green Rains Center for Sport and Recreation. It houses Voelkel Gymnasium, which serves as the home court for the Pomona-Pitzer Men's and Women's Basketball and Volleyball programs. The 2,400-seat gymnasium has served as the host for the Elite 100 Boys Basketball camp in the summer of 2015. Also within the Rains Center are four racquetball/handball courts and two squash courts, and a weight-training facility which includes a complete set of Cybex equipment, free weights and fitness machines.

Pauley Tennis Complex

The Pauley Tennis Complex, originally constructed in 1989 with thanks from a generous donation by the Edwin Pauley family, is a 10-court plexipave facility that was extensively renovated in 2010, including the resurfacing of all ten courts, new fences and windscreens, additional lighting on four courts, expanded storage facilities, a new team room, improved signage, men's and women's tennis historical records boards, and an outdoor speaker system. The facility has been a host sire for the 2011 NCAA Division III Championships and served as the host venue for the 2014 ITA West Regionals. 

Haldeman Aquatics Center

The Haldeman Aquatics Center, completed in 1991, serves as the home for the Pomona-Pitzer Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving teams and Men's and Women's Water Polo teams. The pool contains a 50-meter by 25 yards Olympic-size pool, one and three-meter diving boards and separate locker and training facilities. Haldeman has also been utilized as a training facility for USA Water Polo, including an international match against Italy in December of 2014, and was a host site for the 2015 US Open of Water Polo.

 

Alumni Field

The home of Pomona-Pitzer Baseball, Alumni Field is tucked into a scenic setting featuring a view of the San Gabriel Mountains. The facility has unique dimensions with a deep fence down the left field line (360 feet) and a short porch in right field (290 feet), as well as an ivy-covered wall down the left field line. The playing surface features a clay infield, natural grass, and permanent seating behind home plate for 500 people.

Strehle Track

The 400-meter all-weather Strehle Track serves as the home facility for the Sagehens Track and Field and Cross Country teams. The facility welcomes hundreds of competitors every year, including Olympians and top international athletes, to the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational, and has served as the host site for three NCAA West Regionals in cross country (which will be held at Strehle Track again in 2015).

Merritt Field

The 4,000-seat Merritt Field serves as the home for Pomona-Pitzer Football and was named for legendary Sagehen coach Earl "Fuzz" Merritt ('25), who headed the program from 1925 to 1958. The facility, which is adjacent to the Rains Center, features natural grass, permanent bleacher seating, and a working press box for 12 people. The West end zone also features a trademark giant oak tree behind the goal posts.

 

South Athletics Complex

First opened for varsity competition in 2012, the South Athletics Complex is Pomona-Pitzer's newest athletic facility and serves as the home for the Women's Lacrosse program, while also doubling as a practice facility for the soccer programs. The fully-lit synthetic FieldTurf facility allows for use during inclement weather and in the evening. The brand new complex has already hosted two SCIAC Championship games in 2014 and 2015, as well as an NCAA Second Round contest in 2015. 

Pomona-Pitzer Soccer Stadium



The natural grass Pomona-Pitzer Soccer Stadium has been the home site for the Sagehen Men's Soccer and Women's Soccer programs for decades. The well-manicured field served as a training facility for the four semifinalists in the 1999 Women's World Cup, and in 2000, it was used by the U.S. Men's National Team for training.

Pomona-Pitzer Softball Stadium

Pomona-Pitzer Softball Stadium (informally called "Wig Beach Field") is located on the Southwest Corner of campus at the intersection of First Street and College Avenue. The stadium features permanent bleacher seating and a storage area behind home plate, batting cages, and has been used a practice facility by several Division I programs prior to NCAA Tournaments in California.
