The Garfield Sobers Gymnasium (or occasionally the "Wildey Gym") is one of the main government-owned indoor sporting facilities located in the country of Barbados. Able to accommodate close to 5,000 people, it is situated northeast of the ABC Highway within the Sir Gary Sobers Sports Complex. Normally hosting many student, professional as well as charity sporting events to the wider Barbadian community, it has also become home to song contests, entertainment shows, basketball, volleyball, and bodybuilding events in addition to badminton contests. "The Gymnasium" is located in the neighbourhood of Wildey, Saint Michael. Also found at the Sir Gary Sobers Sports Complex are tennis courts and an Aquatic Centre. The Wildey Gymnasium was completed in November, 1992 and in 2005 it underwent a sponsored refurbishment under a grant by the Chinese government.

The Garfield Sobers Sports Complex falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education, Youth Affairs and Sports.
