Facilities

 

Gillom Sports 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 Sports Center, ushered in a new era in women's athletics at Ole Miss.

The building houses offices and locker rooms for the rifle, soccer, softball and volleyball programs, and contains three indoor tennis courts, a championship volleyball court and another court which can be used for both volleyball and basketball practices.

On April 28, 2000, the complex was dedicated as the Gillom Sports 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.

Other than the locker rooms and offices, the 54,142 square-foot building contains equipment and team meeting rooms for soccer, softball and volleyball, a training room, a laundry room, two visitors locker rooms. The two volleyball courts are of hardwood construction and can be converted for basketball practice or other uses.

VOLLEYBALL

The volleyball portion of the Gillom Sports 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.

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 have access to computers and desks for studying or can choose to gather around the television and video gaming systems to relax.

Over the years, the Gillom Sports Center has become a tough venue on visiting teams thanks to a vocal and supportive fan base. The Rebels have posted a 70-42 record at home over the last eight seasons for a .625 winning percentage at home. All of the top-10 crowds in school history have come in the past 12 years.

SOCCER

Helping to provide the perfect environment for collegiate soccer in 2006 was the installation of a state-of-the-art scoreboard and color graphics message board. With seating for over 1,500 spectators, the stadium is located directly behind the Gillom Sports Center, which houses the team’s locker room and newly renovated team meeting area, a changing room for officials and the coaches’ offices.

The 2002 season was a momentous one for Ole Miss Soccer Stadium, as it was not only the site of the SEC Tournament but also underwent a major facelift. A two-story brick building was constructed, supplying a three-room media area on the top floor and concessions and restrooms on the bottom. The building, coupled with the bricking of the backside of the stands and landscaping all around the complex, make the Rebels’ stadium one of the finest and most attractive in the nation. The construction concluded just prior to the SEC Tournament, which was also an overwhelming success. The Rebels’ first-round match with Kentucky drew a crowd of 1,588 — the second largest in stadium history.  The field received new sod prior to the 2011 season.

In recent years, Ole Miss Soccer Stadium has played host for some of the highest attendances of any UM women’s sport. The 2001 season finale against Mississippi State attracted the largest crowd in stadium history, a standing-room-only total of 1,791 for the double-overtime thriller. The stadium has also seen crowds of 1,421 for Notre Dame in 2006, 1,141 for Auburn in 2003, 1,133 for LSU in 1998 and 1,089 for Mississippi State in 2005.

TENNIS

The Ole Miss tennis programs also benefit from the Gillom Sports Center. The facility contains three indoor tennis courts, allowing both tennis teams to play all their matches in Oxford, rain or shine.  The facility features an electronic scoreboard and seating up top for optimal viewing of all three courts.

The Rebels play several matches on the indoors courts during the winter months and have hosted the first and second rounds of the ITA National Team Indoor.  In 2013, both the men and women's teams will host the first and second rounds of the ITA National Team Indoor Jan. 25-28.
