Located in the Kendall Sports & Dance Complex, the Mount Holyoke Natatorium is home of the College’s swimming and diving team. The facility, which was renovated in 2008 by way of a generous donation by Trustee David Wilson, features an eight-lane, 25-yard long pool equipped with new starting blocks, new lane lines, a Colorado Timing System and an LED scoreboard. Also included in the space is a 3,600 square foot diving well with two one-meter diving boards and one three-meter diving board. The complex features bleacher seating for up to 385 people. Numerous members of the Mount Holyoke and surrounding communities make use of the facility in addition to the swimming and diving team.
