In 2015 The Arena of Southwell Complex was renamed Bob Burchard Court at Southwell Complex. The court was named after long-time Head Men’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Bob Burchard.
Bob Burchard Court at Southwell Complex has been the home for Columbia College Volleyball and Basketball since 1988. Named for Virginia Southwell Singletary, Southwell Complex includes Bob Burchard Court and The Courts area.
The court now known as Bob Burchard Court underwent extensive renovations in 2002 and now includes more than 550 chair-back seats and seating for over 1,000. In 2006, the Varsity locker rooms were also renovated to include carpets, washing facilities, flat screen TV's and a high tech sound system.
Above Bob Burchard Court, the Cougar press box sits with a state-of-the-art sound system and seating for 10.
In addition to Bob Burchard Court, Southwell Complex houses The Courts area, which includes two courts for basketball, volleyball or tennis. It is open for free play and intramural activities for all Columbia College students, faculty and staff and serves as home for several youth sports camps throughout the year.
