In 1988, the pool in Chandler opened for competitive use and has played host to several New England Championships and three NCAA Division III Championship Meets.
On May 20, 2000, the 50-meter (60-foot) wide pool was officially named The Carl R. Samuelson and Robert B. Muir Pool in honor of the two legendary Williams coaches.
Muir and Samuelson coached a combined 62 years at Williams. In Muir's 30 years, the Ephs never had a losing season. Samuelson coached the next 32 years, highlighted by two NCAA Division III titles (1982 & 1983) and an amazing 11 years in a row of winning the men's and women's New England Championship in the same year.
Samuelson-Muir Pool is an 8 lane 50 meter pool with a separate diving well that includes two 1-meter diving boards and two 3-meter diving boards. The pool contains two movable bulkheads that allow for a warm-up area in between the competition pool and the diving well. In addition, the Bob Muir Gallery offers seating for 400.
