The University's athletic facilities have often been called the most beautiful in America. The facilities include six tennis courts, soccer field, baseball field and gymnasium. The gymnasium can be used for a variety of functions including volleyball and basketball or as meeting space for groups of up to 2,500.
Groups may bring their own sports equipment or they may rent equipment from the PLNU Outdoor Equipment Rental Center. Vehicles and equipment/activities that might cause damage to the facilities are prohibited.
While PLNU does not have a swimming pool or access to swimming beaches, many local beach communities are located close by. Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and Mission Bay which have public beach access are within ten minutes of campus by car.
Golden Gym may be used for meetings as well as athletic/ recreactional events. The court can be set up as 3 half courts or one full court. Volleyball nets can be set up. The floor must be covered for mon-athletic use at the expense of the Guest Group. All guests must wear shoes with non-marking soles.
No activity is allowed on the track or any other track and field surface (i.e. long jump pits, etc.) without prior approval. Activities involving liquids of any kind (including water) or any other substances such as flour, jello, etc., must be approved in advance by the Athletic Facilities Director. Groups may also be asked to rotate the location of their activities to make sure that the turf is not damaged.
