Belmont University President Bob Fisher announced Jan. 22 the university's plans to construct an indoor practice facility for student athletes.

The facility, which is expected to be completed in fall 2021, will serve as a training space for men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams, according to a news release. Once constructed, the two-story building will feature two basketball and volleyball courts, strength and conditioning spaces, team lounge areas, offices for coaches and other amenities.


"This is an exciting day for Belmont University and our student-athletes," Fisher said in the release. "The indoor practice facility project coincides with other transformational capital projects on campus, and speaks to our commitment to provide Belmont students with the facilities, tools and resources to thrive academically, athletically and spiritually. The facility will unite Belmont champions of the past, present and future."

The practice facility will be located on Compton Avenue, according to the release. University officials did not announce the cost of the facility.
