SHELBOURNE WRESTLING CENTER
The Shelbourne Wrestling Center was dedicated January 29, 2016 to facilitate practices for the three-time top-four finishing Little Giants wrestling program. The facility features 7,500 square feet of practice area with ResiliteTM mats and underlayment cushioning. The Center also includes a cardio and strength area as well as a 10-person Polar Pool® cold tub and a Bose® sound system. A storage area and separate laundry room along with separate locker rooms for the wrestling coach staff and the wrestling team are part of the 11,000-square feet of building space. In addition, a common hallway with restroom facilities and a locker room for the Wabash tennis team joins the Shelbourne Center to the Collett Tennis Center next door.
ALLEN ATHLETICS AND RECREATION CENTER
A true showpiece of the Wabash College athletic program, the Allen Athletics and Recreation Center provides state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to Little Giant athletes as well as Wabash students, faculty, and staff.
The facility shows the Wabash dedication to lifetime fitness and wellness by providing the 6,700-square-foot Class of 1952 Fitness Center that rivals any facility in Division III. A combination of Cybex and Hammer Strength equipment, as well as free weights and aerobic fitness equipment, allows users to tailor a workout to their specific needs.
The Center also includes the massive Knowling Fieldhouse, named for Bob Knowling '77, chairman and CEO of Internet Access Technologies. The fieldhouse includes a 200-meter indoor track, along with baseball and golf practice areas. It also includes four multi-purpose courts for basketball, volleyball, and other intramural activities.
The Class of 1950 Natatorium is home to Wabash's successful swimming and diving program, and serves as a place for the casual recreational user to pursue lifetime fitness. The facility features an eight-lane, 40-meter pool with movable bulkhead, allowing for simultaneous swimming and diving practice. Swimmers can swim at both 25-yard and 25-meter distances.
The additions of a 115-seat classroom, new locker rooms, training and equipment rooms, racquetball courts, and aquatics facility provide Wabash students with the most up-to-date fitness and wellness equipment available.
Chadwick Court, century-long home to the Wabash basketball team, was renovated in 1999, and features seating for 1,800 "Chadwick Crazies." New seating, scorers table, and sound system provide an exciting home environment for the Division III National Champions (1982) and back-to-back conference titleholders (1997 and 1998).
The $20 million Allen Center was a key component of the Colleges' Campaign for Leadership, and is named for longtime trustee Robert E. Allen '57, former CEO and President of AT&T Corporation. Bob and his wife, Betty, provided a gift of $10 million to begin the construction and renovation of the College's athletic facilities.
