THE GAC IS NOW THE LARGEST AQUATIC CENTER IN THE US
With the ribbon cutting for the fourth pool on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, the Greensboro Aquatic Center (GAC) became the largest indoor aquatic center in the country.
At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Mayor Nancy Vaughan said, "The GAC is not only the biggest facility but it is the best facility in the country."
The new fourth pool adds 19 additional short course lanes or eight additional long course lanes. The new pool is a 27,000-square-foot addition to the GAC facility, including additional locker rooms and office space.
Greensboro Coliseum Complex Managing Director Matt Brown said, "The L-shaped design of this pool is unique in the country."
Brown said, "This new pool is a direct result of the tremendous success of the GAC since its grand opening in 2011. We are thrilled to have the fourth pool to help meet the intense demand for bookings, including meets, practice time for local teams and clubs and our incredibly diverse array of GAC programming, including the phenomenal growth of our 'Learn to Swim' program with Guilford County Schools." ....More
