Monday, April 17th saw the grand opening of the Mike Rose Aquatic Center at the University of Memphis.  

The new aquatics center was built to enhance the aquatics program at the University of Memphis, provide water safety and drowning prevention classes as well as promote community health in Memphis.  

Spectrum Aquatics is delighted to be a part of this facility, providing our Motion Trek BP400 ADA Pool Lift, custom powder coated Single Post Xcellerator Starting Platform with Safety Cover, as well as 3-Bend Handrails, Water Polo Equipment and custom Backstroke Flags.  


“We are delighted to have this facility completed and ready for our community to enjoy. Mike Rose was passionate about creating a world-class aquatics facility that will benefit our entire community. We are grateful for The Rose Foundation working together with organizations across the Mid-South to make Mike’s vision a reality.”
