On the evening of June 24, 2015, the Ritchie Center was closed due to flooding from the severe storm. The flooding impacted the game level of the facility with water entering Joy Burns Arena, Magness Arena, Hamilton Gymnasium and associated support spaces.

The flooding caused enough damage that some venues will be closed. Estimated closure dates are:

  • Joy Burns Arena will re-open Thursday, June 25, at 12 p.m.
    • Locker rooms will re-open at a later date.
  • Magness Arena will re-open Friday, June 26.
    • Locker rooms will re-open at a later date.
  • Hamilton Gymnasium re-open date is unknown.

All other venues will operate on normal schedules, but some program and activity times may change due to the rescheduling from impacted venues. Please check online schedules for the latest information.

There may also be times that our members and guests will have to be directed on alternate routes due to the repair work that needs to be completed, and we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

We will post further updates and impacts as we receive them here.

Thank you for your understanding,
Ritchie Center Staff
