Hawaii Rainbow Wahine Women’s Volleyball TicketsThe Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball program has been one of the nation’s most prestigious for decades. Although its dominant play in this sport peaked in the late 1970s and in the 1980s, Hawaii remains among volleyball’s elite. It has qualified for the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament 38 times and has advanced to the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Regionals 27 times. The team is also among the nation’s most supported. It has ranked in the top three nationally in average attendance every year of the program’s history. Those who join all of these Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball ticket holders, which averaged 6,647 in 2019, get to enjoy some of the nation’s best volleyball as Big West Conference teams and other top schools regularly pay visits to Honolulu. Sometimes, that includes the possibility of attending NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament matches as occurred in 2019. Hawaii defeated Northern Colorado and San Diego here en route to the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Regionals. Get your Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball tickets at StubHub.
Where are Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball matches played?The Stan Sheriff Center has been the home for the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball team since it opened in 1994. It’s self-described as the "jewel" of the UH athletics department and is also home to the school’s men’s volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball teams. It famously hosted the 1999 NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship, which was won by Penn State, and is the largest facility in the Big West Conference. It’s home to a state-of-the-art scoreboard, which includes four HD video boards.
When did the first Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball contest take place?It’s unknown exactly when the first Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball match was held, but it occurred at some point in 1974. It was a 15-2, 15-0 win over either UH-Hilo or BYU-Hawaii, which was played in Kauai.
When has the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball team won the national championship?After claiming an AIAW national championship in 1979, Hawaii took home NCAA national championships in 1982, 1983 and 1987. The first title came after the team had been on the verge of breaking through for years, finishing second or third every season from 1975-78. The win in 1982 was especially dramatic as Hawaii rallied from a 2-0 sets deficit to defeat USC in the title contest, 14-16, 9-15, 15-13, 15-10, 15-12. Its win in the championship match a year later was much quicker, an hour-long 15-13, 15-4, 15-10 win against UCLA. A 15-10, 15-10, 9-15, 15-1 defeat of Stanford in the 1987 championship match gave the Rainbow Wahine its most recent trophy.
Has Hawaii ever missed the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament?Hawaii missed the tournament just once. Hawaii failed to qualify for the 1992 NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament but has participated in postseason play every other season. That squad finished its campaign with a 15-12 record.
What conference does Hawaii play in?Hawaii has played in the Big West Conference from 1988-95 and since 2012. It has the best mark of any team that has played in that league, recording a 282-44 conference record through the 2019 campaign, good for an .865 winning percentage. The last few years, Hawaii and Cal Poly have battled for the league title with the teams finishing first and second in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The Mustangs won the first two of those three titles while the Rainbow Wahine pushed past them in 2019. In their 2019 meeting in Honolulu, a crowd of 6,988 Hawaii Rainbow Wahine women’s volleyball ticket holders watched the home team outlast Cal Poly, 25-15, 22-25, 25-20, 25-23.
