TCNJ’s athletic and recreational facilities support a highly successful intramural, intercollegiate, and club sport program and are among the finest found at Division III colleges and universities in the Northeast. Facilities include a multi-purpose recreation center, a 25-meter swimming and diving facility, a lighted TrophyTurf playing field, an NCAA-approved track, and eight lighted outdoor tennis courts. The spring of 1998 also saw the addition of the Physical Enhancement Center and renovations to Packer Hall that include a new athletic training facility, new locker room facilities, as well as a weight training facility for varsity student-athletes. In addition to regular-season competition, The College of New Jersey has been the site of NCAA Championships in wrestling, softball, men’s soccer, field hockey, women’s tennis, and women’s lacrosse, as well as a number of regional championship contests.
