At Nichols, we think sports are serious business, and our state-of-the-art facilities illustrate this priority.
Imagine working out and playing all out in our beautiful athletic center, home of the Nichols College men’s and women’s basketball teams.
Nichols plays all of its home football, field hockey and lacrosse games on the new Michael J. Vendetti Multi-Purpose Field. Men’s and women’s soccer teams also play some of their home contests here. The field includes an eight-lane rubberized quarter-mile track surrounding a turf field surface and Musco lighting.
Vendetti Field is named in honor of Nichols College Hall of Fame member Michael J. Vendetti, who, as head coach, led the football team to five New England Football Conference Championships in the 1970s. He also coached track and football from 1962 to 1985. As Athletic Director from 1980 to 1985, Vendetti was instrumental in adding women’s basketball, field hockey and women’s softball to the Nichols athletics program.
