The University of Kentucky’s Lancaster Aquatic Center, opened March 29, 1989, represents the finest in collegiate swimming and diving facilities. The Center will host the 2007 Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships in February.
The swimming tank, which holds 1,025,000 gallons of water, has a raised deck gutter with a large overflow. This gutter design is similar to the Indianapolis Natatorium design. Pool depth varies from 4.3 feet to 6.5 feet at the shallow end, utilizing a movable floor of 35 by 75 feet. Water under the diving boards and tower is 17 feet deep. The natatorium features Daktronic automatic timing for swim meets. A 16-by-23 foot wall-mounted scoreboard allows full display of information for eight-lane and 16-lane swim meets. The scoreboard can also display graphics and animation sequences.
