Recreational Facilities/Intramural Programs operate under the direction of the Department

is responsible for the following facilities: the Maxie Lambright Sports Center, golf
course, swimming pool, Hide-Away Park, soccer field, rugby field, and two softball
fields.

Students may use these facilities upon presentation of a valid I.D. card. Faculty
and staff may pay a quarterly or annual fee to use these facilities. Information concerning
fees may be obtained from the Sports Center Office.

The Lambright Sports Center consists of six basketball courts, six volleyball courts,
six badminton courts, two weight rooms, twelve racquetball courts, a jogging track,
an apparatus room, two saunas, and two steam rooms. The Center is open daily for students
and eligible faculty and staff members.

The Louisiana Tech Golf Course is located two miles west of the Tech campus on the
Old Grambling Road. It is a beautifully designed par 36, 6,783 yard nine-hole course.

The olympic-sized swimming pool is located between Memorial Gymnasium and the Visual
Arts Center. Constructed in the shape of a “T,” the pool is heated and enclosed for
year-round use.

Intramural programs are a vital part of extracurricular activity for our students.
There are 26 intramural programs offered by the Department for both men and women,
for a total of 52 programs. For a detailed listing of these activities, contact the

sport club programs. The Power Lifting Club and the Karate Club have achieved both
