There are several recreational areas which valid HACC ID cardholders may utilize:
Putting Green: The artificial green is located to the west side of the building. It has nine holes with flags. As with all other areas of the facility, it is only available when class is not in session on the green. You must provide your own putter.
Sand Volleyball Court: Currently unavailable, check back soon.
Tennis Courts: The eight courts are located a short walk from the Evans Center. They are made of a shock absorbent material that cushions your body from the jarring that takes place during play. Rackets and balls can be checked out at the front desk in the Evans Center.
Field: The field is located a directly in front of the Evans Center. The near field is used only for physical education classes and the home field for the men's soccer team. The far athletic field is open to all HACC students, alumni, faculty and staff. Many of the intramural games are played on this field.
Sidewalk Track: The sidewalk track is located directly in front of the Evans Center. The track circles the two athletic fields. The sidewalk track is open to all HACC students, alumni, and employees of HACC. For more information about the distances of the track, view the information about the track (pdf) or come by Evans Center, where they are posted in the lobby.
The pool area consists of a lap pool and a diving pool. At the beginning of each month the Free Swim Schedule will be posted online here and in the front lobby of the Evans Center. As with other facilities, a valid HACCid is required to enter the pool area.
The lap pool has five lanes that range in depth from 3 ½ to 4 ½ feet. The diving pool has a low diving board and a depth ranging from 10 ½ to 11 ½ feet. Kickboards, floatation belts, and hand buoys are available for participants to use.
As with other areas in the Evans P.E. Center, guests are not permitted into the area without a cardholder.
Please note a swimming suit must be worn in the pool. No cut-off jeans are allowed.
The racquetball court in the Evans Center is available for reservation with a valid HACC ID card. It may be reserved up to ONE WEEK in advance for one hour at a time (NO HALF HOURS). Start times are at the beginning of the hour. We do not reserve the last hour and the court closes 15 minutes before the building.
