Triple Gymnasium

With the goal of creating a facility in which high-performance sports and recreational activities can co-exist, the 25,000 square feet encompasses three state-of-the-art multi-purpose courts to serve the needs of a variety of user groups and individuals in the UWindsor and greater Windsor-Essex community. Not only will it host a variety of intramural and varsity sporting events, it will be the new home for UWindsor Convocation.  

Triple-Court Features

When entering the gymnasium, visitors will immediately notice the iconic Lancer shield on the feature varsity basketball and volleyball court symbolizing University of Windsor unity and pride. The durable, hard maple flooring is built to withstand a magnitude of games, practices and recreational activities while improving performance, comfort and safety by minimizing vibration, maximizing shock absorption, and reducing athlete wear and tear injuries. With 10x more consistent rebounds, the state-of-the-art manufacturing technology will ensure unparalleled gameplay performance – industry flooring trusted by elite NBA (National Basketball League) teams like the Toronto Raptors, Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans, in their training facilities.

Recreational Services + Intercollegiate Sports 

Surrounding the gym floor are sets of retractable seating for up to 2,000 dedicated Lancer fans. The bleachers have the ability to slide away when not in use, providing additional floor space for a variety of customizable setups and events. For team training and recreation activities, the new gymnasium has the capability to host three basketball games or four volleyball games simultaneously. 

In the same fashion as most modern sports arenas, fans attending varsity volleyball and basketball games will enter their seats from the upper level, separating the fan experience from the field of play. Varsity athletes have restricted access to the court floor from their changerooms, acting as a subtle and professional boundary.

Technology upgrades include four scoreboards, surround sound, shot clocks on both basketball nets, LED-video board on the south side of the gymnasium for instant replay capability enhancing the fan and player experience. With a bird's eye view of the court, state-of-the- art production suites will capture all the high-energy action for virtual fans as well as expanding the possibilities for a multitude of high production in-person, virtual and hybrid events including convocation.
