New Pool & Tennis Courts at Oxy

Introducing the future of aquatics and tennis at Occidental College

We’re bringing our athletes home to new aquatic and tennis facilities - the De Mandel Aquatic Center, the Townsend Crosthwaite Pool, McKinnon Family Tennis Center and Robinson Terrace. All will allow us to carry on the historic legacy of Oxy champions.

The Benefits

Who benefits? Everyone.

Our Champions

We’re building on a proud tradition of champions.

Built in 1930, Taylor Pool no longer meets the needs of modern competition. The limited number of courts in the McKinnon Family Tennis Center also fall short. That’s all about to change.

Designed by the nationally recognized architectural firm of Moule & Polyzoides and landscaped by award-winning Van Atta Associates, Occidental’s new 58,000 square-foot complex will make it possible for Oxy’s swimming, diving, water polo and tennis teams to train and compete in facilities that meet NCAA and conference standards. 

“We’ve been talking about bringing our athletes home for a long time,” says Jaime Hoffman, associate vice president and director of athletics. “Now that’s finally going to happen in a big way.”


The new pool and tennis courts would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.
