  • Where are the athletic facilities?

    Wake Forest’s facilities are located both on and off the Reynolda campus. Field hockey and track and field utilize Kentner Stadium, which is located next to Reynolds Gym. The men’s and women’s soccer teams practice and play at Spry Stadium, adjacent to Polo Residence Hall. The volleyball team uses Reynolds Gym as its home facility. The baseball, football and basketball facilities are adjacent to each other off campus on Deacon Boulevard. The football team plays at BB&T Field, the basketball team hosts its home games at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum and the baseball team competes at David F. Couch Ballpark. The men’s and women’s tennis teams practice and play at both the Wake Forest University Indoor Tennis Center and the Wake Forest Tennis Complex.

  • How do I get to the football stadium?

    The stadium is a short walk from campus. Prior to football games, the Athletics Department runs shuttle buses between the Reynolda Campus and BB&T Field. The buses typically start picking up students at Wait Chapel four hours before game time. As kickoff approaches, additional shuttle buses will also make pickups at Benson University Center.

  • How do I get tickets to athletic events?

    All undergraduate students receive free admission to all Wake Forest athletic events by showing their Deacon OneCards. However, the number of seats at these games is limited, and spots are first-come, first-served.

  • Can students tailgate at football games?

    There is a designated student tailgate area within the University Tennis Center, which is behind the East Stands at BB&T Field. Any recognized student organization can reserve space at the student tailgate by contacting WFU Sports Marketing.

  • Where can I get apparel?

    Wake Forest apparel items are sold at Deacon Shops in Kitchin Hall and in Hanes Mall. Be proud and wear your black and gold!

  • How do I try out for a team?

    The walk-on tryout process varies from team to team. The best thing to do is to contact the specific athletic team on which you would like to participate.
