The Battling Bishop men’s and women’s track teams host indoor meets in the Gordon Field House, nestled in the middle of the Ohio Wesleyan campus.
Gordon Field House was named in recognition of the gift of Richard Gordon ’62, a standout tennis player for the Battling Bishops.
The field house received a new roof, new floor, new lighting and a brightened interior in November 2008, and the track was refinished with a state-of-the-art encapsulated surface in December 2008. Gordon Field House annually hosted the Ohio Athletic Conference championships and the OAISW state title meet and was the site of the first 9 North Coast Athletic Conference championship meets.
Gordon Field House also hosts home matches for the men’s and women’s tennis teams on those occasions when outdoor play is not possible. The field house track encircles 4 multipurpose courts that can be used for tennis, volleyball, or basketball. Total floor space in the field house is larger than a football field and the facility often handles indoor practice for fall and spring sports.
