Sports Center Practices and Procedures


Sports Center/Facility Usage

The Reed College Sports Center and all facilities including athletic fields, tennis courts and basketball courts can be utilized by alumni, current staff, faculty and students and other individuals that have received prior authorization from the Director of Physical Education and Athletics. Other general public access and usage to the center and these facilities is not allowed.

Tennis Court Usage

The Reed Tennis courts are available for usage by students, staff, faculty, past women's committee members and alumni ONLY. The courts are locked during the summer months to discourage outside users from monopolizing our limited facilities, we do this to ensure that use may be available for campus use. This year we went from four (4) courts to two (2) courts with the new performance arts building being constructed, so limiting use of the courts to outside groups in order to cater to Reed groups is a priority.

Keys to the tennis courts can be checked out at the Sports Center cage during open hours. Keys are also available for long-term check out for the summer ($50.00 refundable deposit required for Alums and Women's Committee Members). Please see sports center supervisors for details.

Physical Education Sponsored Events

It is a mutual expectation between all Reed Physical Education personnel and the student population that all PE events, programs, and classes whether on or off campus remain entirely substance free. A Physical Education sponsored event is any activity that is subsidized in any way by PE department funding or support. PE sponsored activities include, but are not limited to, all PE classes, club team sporting and social events, college vehicle use financed by the PE dept, travel, lodging, or any activity endorsed, promoted and/or fiscally supported by the Reed College Physical Education Department.
