NCAA Competes on Taraflex

The NU Coliseum is home to the University of Nebraska Women’s Volleyball team and includes a 5,500 square foot Olympic size volleyball court with a 15 foot red border. Per the request of Head Volleyball Coach, John Cook, the same vinyl flooring used in the summer Olympic Games since 1976 was installed to cover the facility’s existing hardwood floors. Gerflor’s Taraflex vinyl flooring is adhered to the hardwood floors using double-sided tape during volleyball matches and is easily rolled up when the NU Coliseum plays host to campus recreation activities. The Women’s Husker Volleyball team is a NCAA Division 1 team and national powerhouse, which wins more than 90% of its home games each year. Three national championships, thirty-one All-Americans, and three Olympians are proof positive of the success of this iconic program.
