You will still need your Texas Tech ID card to enter the building.  We have placed the card swipers 6 ft apart, so that physical distancing guidelines are kept.

Once you are in the Building

The Rec Center will look different than the last time you were here!  

  • We will be monitoring the workout spaces around the Rec Center to maintain 50% of full capacity for individual areas.  Some areas, like the Raider Performance Zone (Court 1) will have a stated capacity and you will be able to use multiple pieces of equipment while in the area.  Other areas, like the Half-Circle Cardio Area, will be based on the 50% capacity rule and by the pieces of equipment in that area.
  • We will be cleaning each piece of equipment and the entire building throughout the day and after close.  
  • We have also re-configured some our spaces like basketball courts to comply with physical distancing protocol. Courts will be reserved for badminton, pickleball and open recreation.  Basketball will not be permitted.

What Not to Expect

Building Amenities

These areas are unavailable: Indoor Soccer Arena, Boxing Room, and Saunas.

Water Fountains have been removed.  Bring your own water bottle.

Sweat Towels and shower towels will not be available.  Please bring your own.

Limited Sports equipment will be available for check-out.

Health and Safety

Rec Sports is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable workout experience for Texas Tech Students, Faculty, Staff and our members. Here are a few of the things we have changed in our facility:

All Rec Sports Employees must pass a stringent safety check before coming to work. They will also be required to wear a mask for their shift and gloves while cleaning equipment.

We have spaced out our workout equipment to follow physical distancing guidelines.

Rec Sports has installed more hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. We now have over 50 stations for you to use.

We have worked with the TTU Fire Marshall to assess different area of the Rec Center for compliance to the 50% capacity guidelines. We will be limiting the number of patrons in areas of the Rec Center to the 50% capacity rating.
