Moody Bible Institute has a wide variety of facilities and resources available to the students, faculty, and staff of Moody.
The Solheim Center is our world-class indoor athletic facility. For outdoor activities, Moody also houses an on-campus soccer field, softball field, and tennis courts.
The Solheim Center, dedicated Jan. 30, 1991, serves as an athletic recreation, fitness, and sports ministry facility for Moody Bible Institute. This multi-level building totals 70,000 square feet. Outside the building is a full-sized soccer field and tennis courts.
The Solheim Center is named in honor of Karsten and Louise Solheim, longtime friends of Moody. Mr. Solheim was an inventor and the developer of Ping Golf Clubs. Until 1995, he was also president of Karsten Manufacturing (Phoenix, Arizona), a company that produces golf equipment and materials for the aerospace industry.
Mr. and Mrs. Solheim have taken a special interest in the development of Solheim Center as a life sciences and urban outreach center for Moody.
All full-time Moody students, as well as faculty and staff, are welcome to visit the Solheim Center free of charge. Yearly Affiliate Memberships are available beginning Jan. 1 of each year for Moody staff and faculty families, alumni, and friends of Moody to utilize the facility for a small fee.
The Solheim Center is also available for rent by outside groups by following the instructions on our reservations page.
