    The indoor tennis courts were recognized by University Business magazine as an outstanding trend in campus recreation centers for artistic branding. Credit to Kim Nelson in University Relations for the flaming bronco design.

The Student Recreation Center at Western Michigan University houses University Recreation offices and programs. We offer open recreation, personal training, sport leagues and group exercise, utilizing equipment and facilities to promote health and well being. Programs focus on stress reduction, weight loss, increased flexibility and strength, friendly competition and social interaction.
