The Gettysburg College Bullets Pool opened during the 2009-10 season, with the first meet taking place against Washington & Lee University on Jan. 16, 2010.
Located in the Center for Athletics, Recreation, and Fitness, the 30,000-square-foot natatorium gives the swimming teams one of the most impressive facilities in the Centennial Conference and Division III. The eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool features a movable bulkhead along with a five-lane warm-up area, a substantial improvement over the team’s former six-lane, 25-yard facility in the College Union Building. The expansive venue offers a better experience for fans as well, with its increased lighting and 375-seat spectator gallery. In addition, the natatorium includes new locker rooms and new offices for Gettysburg’s swimming coaches. Other amenities include a scoreboard with an eight-lane readout and increased deck space for land training.
The pool is also available for recreational use by college students, faculty, and staff.
