In addition to our 123,000 square foot building, we offer an outdoor multipurpose field and tennis courts.
The Marshall University Multipurpose Field is the perfect spot for students to get together and show off their athletic skills right outside of the Marshall Recreation Center. The field is made of synthetic turf, which makes it perfect for intramural sports such as flag football, soccer, ultimate Frisbee and any other field sports. Groups and individuals are welcome to make reservations through the department’s facility rental packages. On a beautiful day or even a rainy day, open recreation is encouraged if the space is not reserved. Field equipment can also be reserved free of charge by simply going to equipment checkout. In order to see if the field is available, schedules can be viewed on the iPad located just outside of the Proshop.
Marshall University has six courts for those who love a good tennis match. The lighted courts are located west of the First Year Residence Halls and in front of Gullickson Hall, which makes access easy for students. The courts are welcome to anyone and are available during recreation center hours of operation as long as other events are not scheduled. Reservations can be made by calling the Marshall University Recreation Center up to 24 hours in advance. Tennis racquets can be reserved at equipment checkout at no cost and tennis balls are also available for purchase at the Pro Shop.
