The Duke Blue Devils Volleyball team may practice on East Campus, but all home matches are played at the famous Cameron Indoor Stadium in the heart of Duke's West athletic complex. With a capacity of 9,314, Cameron provides one of the most exciting atmospheres in college volleyball.

The Blue Devils often draw crowds reaching 2,000 fans and with the "Cameron Crazies" in attendance, Duke can boast a decided home court advantage.

In 1987-88, Cameron underwent a major renovation that gave the place its current shine. The oak paneling, brass rails and a new electronic scoreboard are the most visible parts of the renovations which included refurbishing of the lobbies, upper concourses and hallways.

The athletic department gave Cameron another "facelift" in the summer of 1997 by installing in a state-of-the-art floor, providing the volleyball team with an outstanding playing surface.

Over the past decade, the volleyball team owns a 150-55 record in the arena. The Blue Devils also have hosted two first round NCAA Tournament matches, including the 1994 season's 3-0 win over Georgia, and the 1993 ACC Championship Tournament.

Across from Cameron is the William David Murray Building, a multipurpose athletic facility located just off the concourse of Wallace Wade Stadium. Only eight years old, the $2.4 million structure reflects the best in contemporary architecture, while also preserving the traditions of Duke athletics. The middle floor of the building's three stories features a modern weight room and an extensive health training area. The size of both areas and the up-to-date conveniences included in each provide Duke's strength and conditioning coaches with the capacity to serve all Blue Devil athletes.

The new 2,000 square-foot Card Gym weight room allows for the Duke volleyball team to workout in comfort.  Blue Devil athletes are also provided with the finest in sports medicine and athletic training. The volleyball team has its own athletic trainer who is on duty at each practice, thus helping to prevent injuries and to properly care for injuries. The trainer also travels with the team, ensuring the best care while on the road and away from Duke's outstanding facilities.
