Choose Hampton, Virginia

As Coastal Virginia’s geographic center and the proud home of the world’s greatest natural harbor, Hampton’s aquatic heritage is as deep as the Chesapeake Bay and as vast as the Atlantic Ocean. It’s only natural that this beautiful coastal community will soon be home to one of the largest competitive aquatic facilities in the Mid-Atlantic: the Hampton Virginia Aquaplex.

Welcome To Hampton Virginia Aquaplex

Set to open summer 2022, adjacent to the Hampton Roads Convention Center and
Hampton Coliseum, this state-of-the-art facility is the largest of its kind in Virginia. Purpose-built
for competitive aquatics, the Aquaplex was designed to host Mid-Atlantic and national competitive
swimming and diving events, artistic swimming, water polo, and more. Spectator seating for 1,500 overlook the eight-lane, 50-meter pool with two moveable bulkheads. Seating for 760 athletes occupies the wide, spacious pool decks for the smoothest of swim and dive event execution.

Swimmer warm-up and warm-down is a breeze in the eight-lane, 25-yard programming pool, and nearby multi-purpose rooms provide space for event staging and hospitable functionality. A culinary center with two purchase points ensures spectators never miss an exciting moment. Because it’s within an easy walk, the Hampton Roads Convention Center offers additional exhibitor and event space. Hotel accommodations surround the Aquaplex, ensuring easy access to guest rooms for swimmers and their families. There are 1,200 rooms within walking distance, and more than 6,000 rooms within close proximity.
