Hermann Student Center  

The Hermann Athletic Center offers one of the best home court advantages in the USA South Conference. With fans and fellow students just feet from the court, the 600-person gymnasium provides an intimate and exciting atmosphere for the volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball teams.

Built in 1963, the Hermann Center is a staple on the downtown Raleigh campus and reflects the tradition and commitment to progress at WPU. The gymnasium has undergone renovations twice in the past decade, with the last upgrade improving men and women’s locker rooms in the summer of 2012. The facility also features a newly redesigned floor and dynamic center court logo.

In addition to basketball and volleyball facilities, the Hermann Center also houses an auxiliary gym, intramural space, fitness and weight room facilities, and the athletic training room.

  The Ragland Tennis Courts  

William Peace University tennis has long been one of the premiere amateur programs in the state and the Ragland Tennis Courts are a big part of that tradition. Serving as the home to Pacer tennis for more than 40 years, the Ragland Courts have seen the Pacers take down ACC squads and win six NJCAA Region X championships.

The Ragland Tennis facility is located on the Halifax Street side of campus by the Herman Athletic Center and features six courts, three of which are lighted.  The Ragland family funded its construction in 1966, which is when the three all-weather tennis courts were built. Two additional lighted courts were added in 1973 and a third was built in 1977, which was also funded by the Ragland family.

In 2004, the Ragland family sponsored the renewal of the Ragland Courts with resurfacing, new windscreens, fencing and landscaping.


  The Wachovia Athletic Field  

The Wachovia Athletic Field is the athletic centerpiece on the William Peace University campus. Located just steps away from on-campus dorms, the Wachovia Athletic Field has offered a fan-friendly environment for the Pacer softball team since 2000.

The facility includes a field house with locker rooms, enclosed dugouts, scorer’s booth, restrooms, an equipment room and coach's office. It was constructed in part using funds raised by Wachovia Bank.

The field dimensions are friendly to right-hand hitters with a short left field (190 feet) but deep 215 feet to center field. The 12-foot-tall right field wall is the signature feature of the field as our own Green Monster running down the sideline.

A state of the art sprinkler system also feeds the Bermuda grass outfield with the batting cage and bullpen located beyond center field.
