The William Neal Reynolds Coliseum, home of NC State women's basketball, women's gymnastics, women's volleyball and wrestling, is one of the most tradition filled and exciting places in America to watch collegiate athletics.
With 8,560 red seats, Reynolds makes for a wonderful home court advantage that has been enjoyed by Wolfpack athletics dating back to the first game played on Friday, Dec. 2, 1949, when the men's basketball team defeated Washington & Lee by the score of 67-47.
One of the great changes to Reynolds Coliseum came in 2005 with instillation of a new maple wood playing surface that covers the entire floor of the Coliseum. The scoreboard was renovated before the start of the 2010-11 season that gives fans an even better experience when cheering on the Wolfpack.
The volleyball and wrestling teams compete on the north end of the floor. That change back in 2005 has allowed the basketball and volleyball teams to practice simultaneously.
On gymnastics meet days the arena is transformed into a forum, complete with beams, floor, vault and bars.
