About Wheeler Beach
Wheeler Beach opened for the beach volleyball program’s inaugural season in 2014. It is located between Carolina Softball Stadium and Carolina Tennis Center. The complex is the first collegiate beach volleyball facility of its kind and the first-ever in the SEC. It features five courts with lights and electronic scoreboards on each court, the first collegiate beach volleyball facility to have this feature.
At the end of the complex is a master scoreboard that keeps fans informed with the latest scores on each of the five courts and the overall dual. It’s the first electronic scoreboard specifically for beach volleyball in the world. Palmetto trees have been placed throughout the facility, and fans can bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on the turf and enjoy the matches. The facility also features a sound system that has music playing throughout the duals.
