 Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex Visit 

On August 7, 2008, the Communications and Marketing team, together with Vice President Henry De Vries, took a tour of the new Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex. The facility is well on its way to completion, with the Huizenga Tennis and Track Center scheduled for use this fall and the Van Noord Arena and Venema Aquatic Center scheduled to open in early January 2009. The existing fieldhouse, to be renamed the Hoogenboom Health and Recreation Center, will, after significant renovations, re-open in spring 2009. See footage from the visit and read facts about the Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex at the communications and marketing Web site.
