Athletic and Recreation Facilities

The Cedarville University athletic and recreation facilities were built, and are now maintained, to help meet the athletic, recreational, educational, fitness, and wellness needs of the University family, along with hosting several University-sponsored activities, conferences, and events.

The Athletic Center, completed in 1981, houses the Stranahan Gymnasium, the athletic training facility, the athletic equipment room, 14 locker rooms, nine classrooms, an exercise lab, and a new athletic varsity weight room, a new athletic team room, along with 46 offices servicing the Athletic and Allied Health Departments. The Stranahan Gymnasium serves as the competition gym for both men's and women's varsity basketball teams, the varsity women's volleyball team, as well as the club and intramural sports programs. It has an all-wood floor with the following overlapping courts: the main basketball court, three additional full-length basketball courts, three additional half-court basketball courts, five volleyball courts, or 10 badminton courts.
