The Webster Center

College opens recreation and special events center


From basketball practice and intramural matches to racquetball and dance parties, the Webster Center has been home to countless special events, exciting competitions, and other treasured memories over the years. The recreation and special events facility was opened in 1989 and renamed the Webster Center in 1994 in honor of former Toronto Blue Jays owner R. Howard Webster ’32. The center includes the PepsiCo Pavilion, five squash courts, an indoor track, fully equipped Lunder Fitness Center, Morse Pool, and the Chandor Dance Studio. It also houses Staake Gymnasium (named after longtime Babson administrator Paul C. Staake Jr.) and the recently rededicated PepsiCo Enrico Pavilion, which serves as an indoor practice facility for Babson’s varsity teams, as well as numerous intramural and recreational activities.
