Facilities[edit]

Greene Complex for Sports and Recreation[edit]

The Greene is home to the Sailfish men's and women's basketball teams and the volleyball team. It's also the training and treatment center for other PBA athletic teams. There are four locker rooms located in the building along with a unique team room just off the Rubin Arena floor. Staff members for the athletic department and campus recreation department call this building home.

Rubin Arena[edit]

This 2,000 seat arena is the home of the Sailfish men's and women's basketball teams as well as the women's volleyball team. The Rubin Arena has two levels of seating that surround the main floor that feature a full-length basketball court for varsity contests, the ability to occupy two volleyball courts, as well as auxiliary basketball goals that lower from the ceiling. This multi-use facility also is equipped with an electrically lowered batting cage in the west mezzanine that can be used for off-season training for the Sailfish baseball and softball teams. The arena also features a unique side room known as "The Team Room" where various athletic teams gather either during games (pregame, halftime, etc.) or for film-review or devotional times as a part of their practice sessions.

Mitch Gornto Tennis Center[edit]

The Palm Beach Atlantic men's and women's tennis teams play in the Mitch Gornto Tennis Center. The center has 13 fully lighted courts with shaded seating available in multiple sections of the facility.
