Pacers owner Herb Simon and Pacers Sports & Entertainment unveiled their new training facility, St. Vincent Center on Thursday. The state-of-the-art building will take care of all of the Pacers’ non-game needs while also offering two floors for St. Vincent health care and sports performances facilities.
Among the sweetest of the sweet amenities at St. Vincent Center are the two practice courts named in honor of Bobby “Slick” Leonard and Donnie Walsh. The honor is quite fitting considering Slick and Walsh have likely observed more practice workouts by teams and individuals than any other two people associated with the Pacers over the years.
As for a few of the specs, here’s what the building located east of the Fieldhouse across Delaware Street (but connected by tunnel) has to offer.
The five-story, 130,000-square-foot facility took 18 months to build. It includes two NBA regulation courts, weight room, training room, other amenities and all offices for Pacers basketball staff. The facility will also include dedicated floors where St. Vincent will provide primary care, cardiovascular, and sports performance services for athletes and the general public.
Those words don’t do it justice, so check out the images from the team’s Facebook post below.
