DURHAM, N.C.-Through the generosity of Martin and Pamela Wygod, the Duke University men’s lacrosse team recently unveiled its new locker room facility. Everything in the locker room was updated and improved, including installing a new sound system, DIRECTV and lacrosse specific lockers.

“It is through the extreme generosity of Martin and Pamela Wygod that we were able to renovate the men’s locker room,” head coach John Danowski said. “It’s really been inspired by all of the men who have come before. Our program began in 1938 and there are so many people, too numerous to mention, who have helped build the memories and the foundation of this locker room. While the guys this year and going forward will benefit from the gift of the Wygods, we hope that everybody can share in what we think is a really excellent facility that represents the dignity, the class, the character and the integrity that is Duke lacrosse.”

The new locker room features seven-foot wooden lockers built specifically for a lacrosse player. There is room for up to three helmets on the top shelf, holes for three sticks, lower shelves for up to four pairs of shoes. There is also an opening inside the locker that will allow the players to store extra gear such as sweat pants and sweat shirts and a combination locker for any valuables a player might have. The lockers also will have name plates for each of the players

The fully completed locker room will be branded throughout with Duke logos in the carpet on the walls and outside the locker room as well. There is upgraded lighting throughout with track lighting, spot lights that will shine on the logo and new overhead lighting. The most audible difference in the locker room is the updated sound system with a subwoofer and new speakers along the ceiling that allow the players to relax after a long practice or gear up for a big game. Televisions are on the walls at each end of the locker room with DIRECTV available for down time.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
