Pauley Pavilion, the sports arena of the UCLA Bruins, is one of the most legendary college courts in the nation. The 12,000-seat venue is located on the UCLA campus in Westwood, Los Angeles, and home to the school’s basketball, volleyball, and gymnastic teams.
Dedicated in 1965, Pauley Pavilion – named after the University of California Regent who donated over a fifth of the construction budget – quickly rose to prominence during the John Wooden era, in which the fabled coach led the Bruins to ten National Championships in twelve years. The arena saw the rise of basketball greats such as Bill Walton, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Reggie Miller, as well as current stars like Baron Davis, Kevin Love, and Russell Westbrook. Pauley Pavilion is also a place to spectate UCLA’s top-tier volleyball and gymnastics programs.
In addition to sports, their are frequent entertainment events and concerts at Pauley Pavilion, with appearances ranging from Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Eric Clapton to LMFAO, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. As well, the annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards are often hosted inside.
In 2012, Pauley Pavilion finished undergoing a two-year, one hundred million dollar renovation, which will propel the historic half-century-old arena into modernity and uphold its status as a major destination for college sports and entertainment.
