The $30 million state-of-the-art Hampton Virginia Aquaplex is home to the largest competitive aquatic facility in the Mid-Atlantic. 

The 64,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor Aquaplex is set to host local, regional and national competition events while boosting tourism in the area, resulting in additional revenue for hotels and restaurants. Features include an eight-lane, 50-meter competition pool with two bulkheads; an eight-lane, 25-yard warm-up and cooldown lap pool; springboards; a spa; and spectator seating for 1,500. In addition, the Aquaplex is designed for recreational swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo and several other programming opportunities. 

Additional indoor amenities include a multipurpose room, a culinary center and a space dedicated to team gatherings. The 26,000-square-foot outdoor “Splash Down Park” rounds out the facility and offers an abundance of fun opportunities to cool off from the hot summer sun. Between the lazy river, slides, water basketball and volleyball, and aquatic play structure, there is fun in store for every member of the family. The city, eager to create a drown-proof community, partnered with the school district to offer all third-graders free swim lessons.
