The Baker Sports Complex is the nucleus of Davidson’s athletic program. It is home to events, meetings, training, dining, administrative offices for staff and a state-of-the-art athletic medical facility.
The complex is home to Davidson’s men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, wrestling, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, and men’s and women’s tennis teams. Baker also includes several team locker rooms, two weight rooms, three racquetball courts, one squash court, a dance studio and a modern athletic training room.
Located just to the rear of Baker Sports Complex is the entrance to Davidson’s scenic cross country course, which serves as training ground for the Wildcat cross country teams.
The complex opened in 1989 and is named for the Baker Family. Thompson S. Baker, Class of 1926, played football at Davidson during the most successful years in Davidson football history and also served as the student body president.
