The Shepherd University Wellness Center will remain closed for the rest of 2020. We will reevaluate operations when our campus reopens early in the new year.

Shepherd University is making every effort to maintain its low COVID-19 positivity rate, which is much lower than that of the surrounding municipalities. The University’s primary mission is education. As a university facility, the Wellness Center will do whatever needs to be done to support this mission in order to allow our students, staff, faculty, and members of the community to return safely to campus in the spring semester.

SUWC Reservation Policies


  • Facilities available for reservation include pickleball courts, racquetball courts, and pool lanes 4-8
  • Reservations are for members only. Guests have access to the drop-in pool lanes and open play on available courts.
  • Reservations can be made online up to 24-hours in advance and can be scheduled 2-weeks out.
  • Reservations can be made over the phone at any time during business hours, but we ask for at least a one-hour notice.
  • Reservation walk-ins are welcome, but open spots are not guaranteed. Please schedule ahead of time to ensure a spot. Any court not reserved will be available to drop-in play.
  • Back-to-back bookings in the same area are not allowed to maximize availability for all members.
  • There are no limitations on the number of spaces members can book in one day (i.e., Jenny can book the racquetball court 12 – 1 pm, pickleball 1 -2 pm, and then the pool 2 -3 pm).
  • Reservations are non-transferrable.
  • No waitlists are available. Spots may become available if there are cancellations.
  • Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled pool reservation start time.
  • All pool reservations are permitted through the access gate no more than 10 minutes before their reservation start time.
  • Members must leave their reserved area promptly at the end of their reservation time.

Late Arrivals, Cancelations, No Shows, Running Over Reservation Time

  • If you arrive late to your scheduled time, your reservation block will not be extended. You will be able to enter and use the remaining time on your reservation or can reschedule your reservation.
  • If you cannot attend a session you registered for, you should cancel that reservation with as much notice as possible to allow others to take your spot. You may do so online or by calling the Wellness Center.
  • Excessive “no shows” and running over the reservation time may result in the suspension of privileges to use the Wellness Center reservation system for a set period of time.

If you have any questions about the reservation system or associated policies, please call the Wellness Center at 304-876-5300.

Whether you like to run, swim, lift weights, or shoot hoops, you can do all of these things in our facility and more.
