Serving as home to the California water polo and swimming & diving teams is the Spieker Aquatics Complex, one of the finest outdoor facilities in the United States.
Located on the corner of Dana and Bancroft on the south side of Haas Pavilion, the facility was completed in the fall of 1982. It was made possible through the Cal Sports 80s project and was named after former Cal water polo letterman Edward "Ned" Spieker, who provided the major portion of the funds for the project.
The facility replaced the antiquated Harmon Pool, which served as the home for California aquatics for 50 years. The primary aspect of the extensive remodeling project was the joining of the two previously existing tanks to provide for the 50-meter by 25-yard pool of deep water, suitable for major national and international water polo and swimming championships.
Spieker Aquatics Complex has served as the site of the U.S. Senior National Water Polo Championship in 1984 and '86, the National Qualifying Tournament for collegiate women's water polo in 1997 and 2000, the men's water polo Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament in 2001 and, most recently, the 2010 NCAA Men's Water Polo Tournament.
