The No. 10 Western Washington University volleyball team will officially re-open Sam Carver Gymnasium Tuesday, Sept. 19, when it hosts Simon Fraser at 7 p.m. Admission for the match will be free, and parking in the C lots will be free after 5 p.m.

The on-campus gym recently underwent a two-year remodel, and Tuesday’s Great Northwest Athletic Conference match will be the first on the newly named WECU Court at Carver Gymnasium.

“We are excited to get back to playing in front of the home crowd at Carver Gym and play on WECU Court for the first time,” coach Diane Flick-Williams said in a press release. “We will have 10 road games before we play in Bellingham, but really it’s been two years and 10 games since we feel we’ve had a true home game. To say we are excited would be an understatement, and we invite everyone out to join in the celebration.”
