Thompson-Boling Arena is home to the U.T. Men's and Women’s basketball and Women's Volleyball teams.

The site is also used for other events such as concerts, conventions, and other sporting events such as NBA exhibition games.

Naming the Arena

The arena is named after B. Ray Thompson and former U.T. president Dr. Edward J. Boling.


The arena was first used during the 1987–88 season. With both the Vols and Lady Vols basketball consistently in the top 25, Thompson–Boling Arena has received much attention as a premier college basketball facility.
