Gillom Athletics Performance Center

In the spring of 1996, ground was broken for the construction of a new multi-sport facility, and in July 1997, the complex, the Gillom Athletics Performance Center, ushered in a new era in women's athletics at Ole Miss.

The facility recently underwent an extensive renovation that was completed in the summer of 2017. Updates to the facility included additions to the volleyball competition area, a weight room and training room and two video rooms for teams to watch film. The building houses offices and locker rooms for the rifle, soccer, softball and volleyball programs.

The volleyball portion of the Gillom Center experienced upgrades prior to the 2010 season with the playing court being moved and additional grandstand seating added to the facility. Chairback seating was added to the north side of the court behind the team benches to completely surround the playing surface with fans. 

On April 28, 2000, the complex was dedicated as the Gillom Center in honor of Rebel basketball legends Peggie and Jennifer Gillom. The Gillom sisters are the top two scorers in the history of the program.

The facility, which was built on the University's intramural fields on Hathorn Road near Highway 6, is a metal structure with a brick front similar to other campus edifices.

Right off the court are locker rooms and a team lounge and meeting room. The team meeting room and lounge provides the volleyball program with a place to congregate during non-practice times and can serve as a home away from home for the team. Athletes watch TV, study or play games, including a pool table in the volleyball team room.

Over the years, the Gillom Center has become a tough venue on visiting teams thanks to a vocal and supportive fan base. Dating back to the 2006 season, the Rebels have posted a 113-61 home record. The Rebels equaled their most home wins in program history in 2017 with a 13-6 record.

All of the top-10 crowds in school history have come in the past decade and the Rebels set a single-season attendance record with 11,038 fans coming to the Gillom Athletics Performance Center.
