How much does not having their own facility hurting the volleyball program in recruiting? I could see how girls would not choose UH over other programs due to the makeshift facility they would be playing in. I would like to see UH expand the Athletics Alumni building outward in place of the alumni center part of the facility. Then you can build a volleyball pacific area in the building with locker rooms, courts and also concessions and restrooms for spectators. I believe doing this would help with recruiting. The alumni center can be moved over to the UH Student Center. They can remodel one of the newer built ballrooms into the alumni facility.
If you look at the tennis facilities at Baylor, SMU, Rice, and even Tulsa; they drastically out do the UH tennis facility even with the recent upgrades.s UH should tear down the student tennis courts. They can expand the spectator seating all the way down the competition courts. Behind the seating in the grassy area, UH should build 4 indoor practice courts, then with the remaining area, they could build a concession and restroom facility for spectators to be shared by track, soccer, and tennis programs. I actually made a small sketch and emailed this idea to a couple of people at UH including the Pezman and the head of facilities.
