THE PAVILION
The Activities and Recreation Center adjoins the Pavilion (left), formerly known as Recreation Hall, the home venue for UC Davis basketball, volleyball and gymnastics, as well as concerts and special events. With a seating capacity of nearly 8,000, the Pavilion ranks as one of the largest on-campus arenas in Northern California.
ACTIVITIES & RECREATION CENTER
The palatial Activites & Recreation Center (ARC) opened its doors during the spring of 2004, offering a wide array of fitness areas, including full-size basketball courts, a multi-use activity center for indoor soccer or hockey, a running/jogging track, weight rooms, aerobics facilities, squash and racquetball courts and a rock-climbing wall. Additional amenities include a wellness center, student lounges and opportunities for conferences and special events.
LA RUE FIELD
Recognized in 1999 as "Softball Field of the Year" by the Sports Turf Managers Association, La Rue Field hosted five NCAA West Region Softball Championships in the past decade. Recent additions include batting cages, covered dugouts and improved press areas.
SCHAAL AQUATICS CENTER
In January of 2004, the Ted & Rand Schaal Aquatics Center hosted its first event. The complex features an Olympic-sized pool, locker rooms, team rooms, office space and permanent seating for approximately 500 spectators. The aquatics center allows UC Davis to host championship events, such as the 2005 Western Water Polo Association tournaments and the 2006 NCAA Championship.
Both Aggie Soccer Field (above), the home of Aggie soccer, and the James M. & Ann Dobbins Baseball Complex (below) were the result of volunteer efforts dating back to the mid-1980s.
DOBBINS BASEBALL COMPLEX
Dobbins boasts one of the finest playing surfaces in Northern California. In 2002, the stadium was enhanced to include a press box, a renovated entrance and permanent concession/restroom facilities.
Lower Hickey Gym, the first home of women's sports in the post-Title IX era, was renovated to become a first-class practice center for the Aggie women's gymnastics team in 2005. The new facility nearly doubled the space of the previous practice center in the ARC Pavilion.
TOOMEY WEIGHT ROOM
UC Davis student-athletes welcomed the expanded weight room, located inside Toomey Field. In addition to nearly tripling in size the previous facility, the upgrade also included all new equipment, restrooms and office space.
TOOMEY FIELD & WOODY WILSON TRACK
Built in the 1950s, Toomey Field has hosted numerous championship events for football, track & field and lacrosse. During the 2000 Olympic Trials, standouts Marion Jones and Michael Johnson used the Woody Wilson Track as a practice facility.

 

MARYA WELCH TENNIS CENTER
In recent years, UC Davis Athletics has seen the opening of two first-class athletics facilities. The Marya Welch Tennis Center (above), an upgrade of the existing Hickey Tennis Courts, began construction in 2004. Long-term plans for the tennis venue include grandstand seating with restrooms and concessions.

Aggie football and women's lacrosse began playing in Aggie Stadium (below) in 2007, located adjacent to the Schaal Aquatics Center. The initial stadium seats approximately 10,000 spectators, with plans for an eventual build-out to as many as 30,000.
