The facilities at Union College often give us the ability to run an entire tournament at a single location. They offer a multi-purpose Memorial Field House with 2 basketball courts side by side. This fieldhouse is often used by their outdoor sports teams in times of bad weather as well as by their winter sports teams for practice. It is the perfect site for a Zero Gravity event as it is a large open space and its many courts allow parents to stay in the same plays for numerous games without the hassle of moving gym to gym across town.
Along with the fieldhouse facility, Union College is also home to the Vinar Athletic Center where their men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams compete. This facility was opened in 2004 and maintains a very modern look, the main court is overlooked by conference rooms with sleek glass windows.
