FEU Diliman Launches Top-Class Sports Center

ORI -1bweb zThe FEU Diliman Sports Center was designed to be the home of the FEU Tamaraws varsity teams. It will accommodate basketball, volleyball, taekwondo, chess, pep squad and fencing, and will augment the world-class artificial pitch already built for the football teams. The Sports Center also houses the administrative and support services for varsity sports including the Athletics Office, the Team Confence Room, Athletes’ Dorm, Shower and Locker Rooms, Therapy Room, Team Tambayan and Trophy Room.

Built to Stand Apart

The building is oriented North-to-South and cross ventilated with baffles and louvers angled for both the Northeast Amihan and Southwest Habagat trade winds. It is located ideally in the FEU Diliman campus to provide access for both home and visiting teams while minimizing any disturbance to the main classroom and academic areas. The exterior look is minimalist and timeless which makes it blend with the original school buildings and the tree-lined environment. Its elevated perch provides a commanding view of the FEU Diliman grounds and Football pitch, and can be seen both day and night with the distinct FEU Tamaraw logo on its facade.

The sports center interiors are fitted with the best international flooring and sports equipment available in the market today:
• CONNOR USA’s 1st grade Maple wood sports floor system as the centerpiece basketball court, the same flooring endorsed by the U.S. NCAA for their men’s and women’s Basketball Final Four and Championships, and played on by NBA teams like the Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat, Oklahoma Thunder, Boston Celtics, Portland Trailblazers, New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers
• PORTER USA’s top-of-the-line basketball goal system custom painted and padded in FEU colors, with the latest Torq-flex 180-degree snap back rims; PORTER Power line volleyball net standard; plus PORTER tip-and-roll aluminum bleachers and protective court cover
• UNICC’s custom-built digital scoreboard, game timer and shot clocks with officials’ table
• PHILIPS metal halide gym lighting system
• Wall-to-wall GERFLOR TARAFLEX (France) flooring for the adjacent multiple sports area

Future additions shall include a SPORT COURT USA’s flexible floor tile system for the outdoor basketball/volleyball court. This can be transferred to the indoor FEU Diliman Futsal area for year round active use. A FITNESS CENTER for the athletes’ strength and conditioning and a LIBRARY/SPORTS RESOURCE Center will make FEU Diliman, a school of choice for sports excellence.
