Pomona's athletics facilities compare favorably with those of any NCAA Division III college in the country, surprising visitors with a scale and quality that exceeds expectations for a small college. The facilities are open to all students regardless of participation in organized sports.
The centerpiece is the Lilliore Green Rains Center for Sport and Recreation. It houses two gymnasiums which can be arranged into five regulation basketball courts, as well as volleyball and badminton courts. Also within the center are four racquetball/handball courts and two squash courts. The weight-training facility includes a complete set of Cybex equipment, free weights and fitness machines. You'll also find an exercise room for aerobics, martial arts yoga and fencing, plus locker rooms for varsity athletes, other students, faculty and staff.
Outdoor sports fields make it easy to enjoy the sunny Southern California weather. Pomona's campus stretches over 140 acres, providing space for excellent athletic facilities. They include:
- The Haldeman Aquatics Center, completed in 1991, with a 50-meter by 25 yards Olympic-size pool, one- and three-meter diving boards and separate locker and training facilities. The campus also has a second 25-yard pool and diving well.
- Football, baseball, soccer and softball fields.
- Two separate tennis facilities: the recently renovated 10-court Pauley Tennis Complex, and the recently resurfaced four-court Rogers Tennis Facility.
- The 400-meter all-weather Strehle Track and adjacent field facilities.
- A synthetic turf field located above the First Street parking structure, which serves as the home for the Women's Lacrosse program. The field is also used for soccer practices, as well as club and intramural sports.
- Four additional fields for soccer, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, and field hockey. The campus soccer fields served as training facilities for the four semifinalists in the 1999 Women's World Cup and in 2000 were used by the U.S. Men's National Team for training.
