Volleyball and Wallyball


The two north courts in the first-floor gym are available for volleyball during open Student Recreation Center hours. If you need a net set up or height adjusted, stop by our service desk.

Sand volleyball

The outdoor sand volleyball court, located between Western Michigan University's Student Recreation Center and University Arena, is available as weather permits. It is available for open recreation on a daily basis. Groups that want to reserve the court for a specific event should complete our facility rental inquiry form.


Any racquetball court can be converted and reserved for wallyball throughout the week. Reservations can be made during open recreation hours by calling (269) 387-4732. Equipment is available at the equipment issue desk at no charge.
