Dyson Baudo Recreation Center

In 2003, the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center (DBRC) opened on the Marietta College campus. The five-year, 19 million-dollar project established a wellness facility to host varsity, intramural and personal athletic activities in the renovated 54,000 square-foot Ban Johnson Arena and a newly constructed 84,000 square-foot fieldhouse. The DBRC contains an indoor track that encircles four multipurpose courts, a crew training facility, a fitness center, two racquetball courts, a wheelchair-accessible weight room, a multipurpose room and a two-story climbing wall.

Welcome Desk Multipurpose Room
Visit the DBRC Welcome Desk to sign in a guest, borrow equipment for basketball, racquetball and volleyball or to learn more about and register for intramural leagues. The multipurpose room hosts small classes, including yoga and cardio-kickboxing during the semester.
The MC dance and cheerleading squads also use the room for practice space.
Indoor Track and Multipurpose Courts  

Varsity athletes and recreational walkers travel countless miles on the six-lane, two-hundred meter indoor track, which also hosts local meets and the Ohio Athletic Conference Indoor Track Championships with events such as the high jump, shot put and triple jump.

The track encircles four multipurpose courts that can be configured for a variety of activities, including basketball, soccer, tennis and volleyball. In addition to hosting intramural leagues, the courts are also used by varsity teams for indoor practices with amenities such as batting cages.

Weight Room and Fitness Center  

A wheelchair-accessible weight room features numerous benches and tons of weight to provide a complete workout.

Upstairs, the cardiovascular workout room offers a good view of the DBRC fieldhouse and hosts a variety of weight machines and more than twenty pieces of cardio equipment, including treadmills, elliptical machines, Stairmasters and stationary bikes.

Climbing Wall  
A two-story climbing wall, staffed by certified students, runs perpendicular to the weight and workout rooms, providing an alternative to a traditional workout routine.
Racquetball Courts Crew Training Facility

Two racquetball courts host intramural tournaments, including semester-long competitive and recreational challenge ladders and special events such as wallyball. Courts are also available for regular matches between members of the Marietta College community.

Visit the DBRC Welcome Desk to reserve a court, sign up for a tournament or check out equipment.

More than twenty ergometer machines fill the crew training facility for the men's and women's teams to prepare for their grueling spring semester schedule.

The DBRC also hosts the Ohio Valley Indoor Rowing Championships every February.
