Georgia's $40 million Bernard B. and Eugenia A. Ramsey Student Physical Activities Center is where the Georgia Bulldogs play their home matches. The nation's largest on-campus facility for recreation and fitness, the Ramsey Center, features a three-court volleyball arena and locker rooms that are utilized by the Bulldogs for practices and competition. For home matches, retractable bleachers are extended on both sides of center court for a seating capacity of 1,925. 

 

In addition to lively crowds, Georgia's home matches feature the Redcoat Pep Band, UGA Cheerleaders and Georgia mascot Spike! The first volleyball match played in the Ramsey Student Center was on Sept. 22, 1995 vs. a No. 3-ranked Florida. The Gators won 3-0 (15-3, 15-0, 15-7). A record that still stands today, the largest home crowd in program history attended the match (2,633). 

 

Named the best recreational facility in the country by Sports Illustrated in 1997, the Ramsey Center is a constant reminder of the University of Georgia's commitment to athletic excellence and the realization of what is required of greatness. 

 

During the summer of 2009, new additions were added to the volleyball area of the Ramsey Center with the program's coaches moving into new offices along with the addition of a theatre-style team video and scouting room, a new training room, a new visitor's locker room and a players' lounge that features a sitting area, a wi-fi bar and a nutrition station. 

 

The Ramsey Center encompasses 420,000 square feet - the equivalent of 5.5 acres of building - and the variety offered is as vast as the area covered. Five gymnasia, three swimming pools, three multipurpose rooms, a climbing wall, 10 racquetball courts, two international squash courts, two strength and conditioning rooms, a one-eighth-mile jogging track, an outdoor equipment rental room and an outdoor resource center are all available under one roof.
