Considered one of the finest competition pools and diving wells in the nation, the Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion's new technology provides a facility for some of the fastest times and best diving in the country.

In addition to serving as the competition venue for men's and women's swimming and diving, McCorkle also is the home pool to the Ohio State synchronized swimming team. Located in the heart of campus and adjacent to three other world-class facilities - Ohio Stadium, Thompson Library and the Recreation and Physical Activity Center - , McCorkle has earned a reputation for fast water. In fact, that's what the Columbus Dispatch wrote about the facility in an in-depth article titled "Built for Speed."

The article stated that "it's not one thing that makes this pool fast, but a collection of things - the depth, number and width of lanes, deep gutters, and water inlets at the bottom of the pool - that reduce waves."

And the July 2007 issue of Aquatics International magazine stated this about McCorkle:

"... a state-of-the-art competition pool loaded with the latest technology sets a university apart from the competition."

Dedicated October 14, 2005, the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion consists of the Mike Peppe Natatorium and the Ron O'Brien Diving Well. Holding nearly 1.56 million gallons of water in the entire facility, the Pavilion is part of Ohio State's Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC).
