Renovated several times since its opening, Barnhill Arena officially closed its doors as one of the most feared basketball facilities in the country March 3, 1993. It was then re-configured into the largest volleyball-only arena in time for the inaugural season in 1994. Barnhill underwent a renovation of its playing surface to convert the then 19-year-old hardwood floor to a volleyball configuration. In addition to the on-the-court renovation, the Razorback volleyball program was provided with a state-of-the-art locker room. The Barn underwent a second significant facelift prior to the 2002 season to also become the home of University of Arkansas gymnastics.
