Thanks to a gift from a volleyball student-athlete alumna, the locker room in Memorial Gym was recently renovated and features a film room, players lounge, advanced audio/visual system, and study areas. Additional enhancements, once again made possible by a donation to the Virginia Athletics Foundation, have been made in recent months. These enhancements include: the addition of fans to help cool the competition area, graphic design elements in the lobby and in the gym, new scoreboards with video capability, and additional bleachers and improvements to the existing bleachers.
Donations to the Virginia Athletics Foundation directed to Friends Of Volleyball provide operational and scholarship support for the program.
