Woodruff Physical Education Center
Where can you swim in an Olympic-sized pool, climb a sheer rock wall, do the cha-cha, play a quick game of squash or racquetball, run a mile, powerlift, or ride a bicycle while watching television?
Where can you play b-ball on one of four basketball courts or volleyball on one of five courts? Or--if that's not enough--where can you start a pick-up game on one of twelve badminton courts?
The WoodPEC! That's where. And wait until you see what's outside!
The George W. Woodruff Physical Education Center opened its doors to the Emory community in August of 1983. The $20 million physical education center was named in honor of Mr. George W. Woodruff, a well-known Atlanta engineer, businessman, corporate leader, philanthropist and trustee of the University, for his significant role in the transfer of the $105 million Emily and Ernest Woodruff Fund to Emory.
The Woodruff Physical Education Center is home to the Department
of Health, Physical Education & Dance and the Department of
Athletics & Recreation. Emory has hosted numerous special
events, including University Athletic Association (UAA) and
National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championship
athletic events, the Georgia State Special Olympics, the National
Transplant Games, the National Veterans' Wheelchair Games,
President Clinton's Address, 1996 Olympic Training, and much
Recreational Services provides opportunities in club sports, non-credit instructional & fitness classes, intramural sports, personal training, special events and more.
