Competition, Education and Training
Delaware, Ohio

The Meek Aquatics Center, located at Ohio Wesleyan University, features a 10-lane, 25-yard-by-25-meter competition pool with 1-meter and 3-meter spring boards. In addition to hosting training and competitions for swimming & diving, the facility is also used for water polo and recreational activities such as water basketball and volleyball.

In addition to being the home for the Ohio Wesleyan Battling Bishops men's and women's swimming teams, the facility also provides a place for high school teams from nearby Delaware, Ohio to compete.

The building uses a geothermal energy system for heating and cooling, and a heat-recovery system that warms the pool water.
