We have invested $120M in facility projects in the past decade, touching every sport.
Brian Patterson Sports Performance Center
The $33 million, 60,000-square-foot Brian Patterson Sports Performance Center opened in 2016. The north end zone facility is now the home of Rice Football and a resource for all student-athletes. Plans are underway to modernize the full stadium in the near future.
Opened in 2000, Reckling Park is one of college baseball's best facilities. Seating over 7,000 with nine suites, Reckling Park is a frequent post-season tournament venue, hosting 12 NCAA Regionals since opening. A masterplanning process has commenced for future renovations.
Updated most recently in 2014, Tudor Fieldhouse remains a dynamic venue for college basketball and volleyball. Seating over 5,000, the fieldhouse includes a premium club and premium seating for 700. In 2014, the court was upgraded and redesigned.
George R. Brown Tennis Center
The world-class George R. Brown Tennis Center opened in 2014. The 126,000-square-foot facility includes 14 courts and seating for 600 making it an ideal location for major tournaments. State-of-the-art technology enables webcasting of the main competition courts.
Wendel D. Ley Track & Holloway Field
The recent renovations of Wendel D. Ley Track include a new grandstand, an enclosed press box and a newly built 3,250-square-foot building for the soccer and men's and women's track and field and cross-country teams. Plans are underway for continued renovations.
Rice Aquatics Center Natatorium
The Rice Natatorium at the Barbara and David Gibbs Recreation & Wellness Center opened in 2009, complete with a 12,650-square-foot 50-meter completion pool. The picturesque long-course facility is both fantastic and fast. A wealth of wide, deep, lanes just caught the attention of USA Swimming as a possible site to host U.S. junior national competition.
